Schloss Münichau History
The first documents relating to Schloss Münichau refer to the von Münichau family, who had it built in the 15th century. The chapel of the castle was inaugurated in 1469. The lords of Münichau were first ministerial of the abbey of Bamberg, mentioned since 1314, and then dukes of Bavaria. They died in Bavaria in the first half of the sixteenth century, where they moved when Kitzbühel arrived in Austria.
From 1523 to 1538 the lords of Freyberg lived here. At that time, Münichau was a center of the Anabaptist movement, since the lord of the castle Helene von Freyberg had accepted this religion by supporting it vigorously. After their return to the Catholic faith, their sons of King Ferdinand received their confiscated assets back. From 1538 Münichau was owned by Mattheus Lang von Wellenburg. He is said to have held the office of councilor and regent of Innsbruck and of his cousin's castle, the cardinal archbishop of Salzburg, Matthäus Lang von Wellenburg. From 1580 to 1921 the noble seat belonged to the lords and later on it belonged to the Lambergs.
1914 The building was damaged by an accident and was restored in 1921 - with a lower floor. An important restructuring took place in 1957, when the Harisch brothers transformed the sixteenth-century architectural monument into a modern hotel with a noble taste and great for its details.
In addition to rooms and suites at the Schloss Münichau there is also the Ritterstern restaurant with its copper stools and the blue lounge, a beautiful and at the same time cozy environment for different occasions. Whether it's dream weddings, private parties, corporate parties, receptions or anniversaries, the late Baroque halls offer a wonderful setting for any event. Whether it's a reception in the Schlossbar or in fine weather in the idyllic castle garden with a view of the Kitzbühel mountains, at the Schloss Münichau you will find an elegant ambience, an attentive staff and culinary delights for all tastes.
