Primmersdorf Castle is a striking private and historical Castle complex with 13 apartments situated at the river Thaya, which is the border river between Austria and the Czech Republic-between the cities of Raabs and Drosendorf. It is located in the 'Waldviertel', in a quiet idyllic landscape with picturesque villages, hills, forests, fields, various art monuments, monasteries, ruins, churches and castles. The area is ideal for hiking, cycling, playing golf, paddling, swimming in the river, in the lakes or in the swimming pools. Mostly hot summers and pleasant autumns give you the opportunity to explore the wine regions nearby and to enjoy some wine tastings. The winter is cold and rough- Time for snow walking and contemplation.
The area has its own private bathing area at the river and a large river side meadow for sports and games, fireplaces and barbecue. A romantic park with a nice lawn as well as an enchanting courtyard in baroque style with a pond invite you to sit down, have a chat and play games. Hikes and bicycle rides in the neighbourhood lead to the historical town of Drosendorf with 2 swimming pools, ruins and castles. In the city of Raabs which is nearby you can rent canoes and visit a magnificent castle... The pleasant and quiet golf course Autendorf with 18 holes is only few kilometres away and is suitable for both beginners and advanced players. No membership required. For horse riding, also for children, you can go to the riding stable close by. Only half an hour away, you can enjoy wine tasting directly at the wine-growers. On day trips you can visit Wachau at the river Danube, the monastery of Zwettl and the mysterious 'Waldviertel'; the historical and very nice restored city of Brünn or Südmahren with the World Heritage Site Telc. Art, culture and shopping in Vienna are reachable in about 1,5 hrs as well as Vienna Airport. Bratislava and West Slovakia can also be discovered as well as the jewish heritage of Moravia, for example in Mikulov. If you are interested in the history of Bohemia, Moravia and Habsburg, we recommend an excursion to Prague combined with a short stay in Primmersdorf - the journey is approx. 3 hours... So the castle is a nice place to relax and to discover the highlights on site-especially for families with little children but also for excursions relating to contemporary history and history of civilization.
