Overview

Loosdorf Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Self-catering rental in historic house with courtyard

The Hohe Schule offers spacious and comfortable apartments in a historic building, centrally located in scenic Austria. The apartments have each a fully equipped kitchen, TV end wireless internet. The combi can host from 11- 34 persons!

Loosdorf is located near Melk with its famous monastery (UNESCO heritage), Wachau and Danube with its leisure boats, medieval villages and castles, wine-yards and famous wines. Bicycle tours along the Danube are popular and ski resorts in reach.

Shopping facilities and a railway station for direct connections to Vienna are at walking distance. Nearby is a nice bakery and various restaurants (Heurigen, pizzeria, Chinese/Thai ). Cars can be parked at the property area. The large garden is used for leisure breaks. The inner courtyard has recently been renovated.

Sports: In winter the ski pistes in Hochkar, Annaberg at some 50 km and Weinvierteltal near the Donau provide nice opportunities for winter sport.

Golfcourses are in St Polten and Maria Taferl on the Danube at some 20 km from the Hohe Schule.

Hiking can be done in many locations as near as in Sierning/ Haunolsstein towards the Caste of the Count of Montekukuli. Other options are short walks (45 min) from the Donau 30 Km to Schloss Aggstein and Duernstein.

The Hohe Schule was built in 1574 by the count of Losenstein, owner of the nearby Schallaburg castle. The building has authentic arches and wooden windows shutters.

It was the first Lutheran high school in Central Europe and famous for the relatively modern school regulations ('Schulordnung' ) which has been researched by the University of Vienna, where also the original document is kept.

Entspannung im historschen Gemäuer

  • 4 of 5

Einen Aufenthalt in der Hohen Schule Loosdorf kann man uneingeschränkt weiter empfehlen. Das ganze Gebäude atmet Geschichte, schon alleine dies ist eine Reise wert. Die Lage ist optimal mitten im Ort, leider von der Straße her manchmal etwas laut. Nachts aber hat man seine Ruhe. Sehr freundliche Vermieter die sich rührend kümmern. Vom fußläufig erreichbaren Bahnhof ist man in einer Stunde in Wien, abgesehen von den vielen lohnenden Zielen in der näheren Umgebung. Natürlich ist ein Auto hilfreich. Mit dem ist man in wenigen Minuten im Donautal mit den vielen Weinorten.

Ein Tip - den Schnitzaltar in der Kirche zu Mauer sollte man UNBEDINGT ansehen - der lohnt sich mehr als so manches ausgelobte Ziel.

Wir überlegen sehr, ob wir diese wunderbare Gegend bald wieder besuchen.
