JUFA Hotel Schloss Röthelstein History
The castle of Röthelstein was built between 1655 and 1657 by Urban Weber, abbot of the abbey of Admont, on the Klosterkogel and served as a summer residence for the abbots and their brothers. When Admont Abbey was burned down in 1865, Röthelstein Castle served as temporary accommodation for the monks. Until the beginning of the Second World War, there was a gallery of 370 images in the castle. The remains of the ancient collection of paintings are now hung in the chapter house of Admont Abbey and in the local museum. In 1938 Röthelstein was taken over by the German Reich. The Bund Deutscher Mädel was needed as a summer camp. In addition, the collection of images of Heinrich Himmler was filed here. The castle was until 1974 owned by the abbey of Admont. A total restoration took place between 1974 and 1977 under the direction of the Viennese architects Eisenhofer & Gnilsen.
The Röthelstein castle is a two-storey, rectangular, almost symmetrical complex around a courtyard with arched columns today. The castle is surmounted from the east by an octagonal chapel tower and two polygonal corner towers protruding to the west. All towers have onion helmets with lanterns.
