Taggenbrunn Winery

A wide range of events, and wine to finish the day, at Taggenbrunn Castle

The historic Taggenbrunn Castle has dominated the town of the same name since the early 12th century and was once the seat of Carinthia's government. Many hundreds of years later, it has been brought back to life with loving attention to detail and today offers all kinds of ways for you to realise your ideas for an event, seminar or congress in a unique environment. Thanks to the modern hotel – a renovated historic granary dating back to 1503 which now serves as an event venue – and a typical rustic wine tavern with ample seating, you'll find the right setting for any event here. And that includes overnight accommodation and rounding off the day with a glass of home-grown Riesling.

Castle, hotel and wine tavern: the Taggenbrunn Winery

At the Taggenbrunn Winery (a barrier-free venue) you can do far more than just enjoy the wonderful view from the terrace of the wine tavern. Inside, too, the historic building, which was fully refurbished between 2012 and 2021, presents a classically elegant ambience with versatile rooms that can be used for events, seminars and incentives of all kinds. The venue can be divided into up to five rooms. In the largest of these, the ballroom of Taggenbrunn Castle, there is room for up to 700 people, or as many as 1000 without seating. The historic granary dating from 1503 has also been renovated and is now a very special event venue on two storeys with a character all of its own. It can be used by up to 150 participants. Then, after a long day at your event, the visitors can round off the evening at the Taggenbrunner wine tavern, try a wine tasting session, enjoy a delicious Carinthian dinner or admire works of art by the artist André Heller. All accompanied by phenomenal views right over the Glantal valley and as far as Klagenfurt and Feldkirchen.

Gourmet dining and stylish accommodation at Taggenbrunn

Do you want the catering tailored to meet your needs? As one of the region's quality-approved businesses and a member of the Genussland and Marktplatz Mittelkärnten associations, the Riedl family knows how to spoil people. To stoke up your energy for business meetings, they offer light meals at lunchtime. If you are planning a longer break, with an evening meal in a relaxed atmosphere or a regional breakfast, then the Taggenbrunn wine tavern can accommodate up to 200 people. Meals can be booked on a full-board or half-board basis and adapted to suit your individual needs. In terms of equipment, the venue has pinboards, flipcharts, microphones and a stage at the castle. Other items such as a projector, screen and podium can be hired externally for an extra charge. After a long workshop day, perhaps you just want to flop into bed and wake up in the morning to fresh air and Carinthia's beautiful scenery? Taggenbrunn Castle is not only the headquarters for the winery of the same name but it also houses a hotel. With 27 rooms, from double rooms to deluxe apartments and suites, the hotel provides the perfect place to relax and retreat. Ample safe parking is provided in the car park with space for 600 vehicles. If you need overnight accommodation that exceeds the hotel's capacity, then the nearby St. Georgen Abbey and the Fuchspalast Art Hotel also have rooms.

For time out afterwards: enjoy the scenery, food and culture of Carinthia

Are you considering extending your stay after a long week of workshops to explore the surrounding area? At Taggenbrunn Castle, you are in the heart of the natural idyll of the vineyards around St. Veit an der Glan, where you can arrange walks, archery lessons and digital scavenger hunts. Chardonnay, Riesling, Zweigelt and other grapes have been cultivated on the 45-hectare vineyard for 20 years now. The results can and should be tasted on the spot. Another attraction to experience at the castle is the multimedia exhibition „Zeiträume“ (periods of time) by the artist André Heller, which combines imagination and information, sound and light. Culture vultures should also plan their visit around the annual Taggenbrunner Festival, where the programme includes song recitals, chamber music ensembles and musical readings. If you would like to explore the surrounding area, you can drive to St. Veit an der Glan in five minutes and the regional capital Klagenfurt in 15. The magnificent Hochosterwitz castle is also worth an excursion for the day. If, after tasting the delicious Carinthian food, you fancy some further treats, you should explore the Craigher chocolate factory or the Hirter brewery.
