This ancient Schloss is everything you want in a destination hotel. The building's foundations date from 1199, and it retains much of its pre-modern atmosphere, with a beautiful internal courtyard and a tumbling, artfully wild garden and moat beyond. Thirteen bedrooms are available for guests; all have evocative if totally modern bathrooms but beyond that have been minimally renovated.

Each is furnished with a fabulous array of antiques from the Almásy family collection and are truly special. Andrea and Alexander are welcoming and down to earth hosts; Alexander will be happy to show you around and Andrea's wonderful cooking makes breakfast and dinner a treat. For those who've read Michael Ondaatje's The English Patient, there's an extra frisson to it all; this was the childhood home of the fictionalised László Almásy.

Buses run to the village of Bernstein but you're much better off coming here with your own transport.

Quick description via booking.com

Originally dating from 1199, this historic castle in Bernstein in Central Burgenland is the birthplace of Ladislaus Almásy, whose life was featured in the movie "The English Patient", which won 9 oscars. His descendants still run the hotel today. Each of the spacious rooms at Burg Bernstein is decorated with original furnishings and has a tiled stove, wooden floors, a seating area, and a private bathroom. Breakfast including homemade jams, and typical Burgenland specialities are served in the Renaissance-style Great Hall dating from 1580, which is entirely illuminated by candlelight. Guests can visit the historic garden, the chapel, and the Knights’ Hall. An outdoor pool is available, and free WiFi is provided in public areas.
