Welcome to Burg Finstergr├╝n
An old castle for young people
Burg Finstergr├╝n ("castle darkgreen") is a youth hostel of the Austrian Protestant Youth Organisation. It is providing basic accommodation mostly for groups of children and young people, but other visitors (regardless of the religion) are welcome too. Burg Finstergr├╝n is open from the end of April to the middle of October.
More than 1000 years old
The castle is divided in two parts: the old part of the castle, the ruin, is more than 1000 years old and uninhabitable. A place for a campfire within the old walls of the ruin lets the young generation feel romantic like old knights and damsels of the castle. The younger part - directly next door to the ruin - was built around 1900 in the style of the 13th century. This part houses more than 150 persons in 5 separate sections.
A unique experience
Rooms of 1 to 12 beds with a toilet on each floor, washing rooms in the basement (one for boys/men and one for girls/women) and a lot of other big and tiny rooms for residence let the guests feel well. More than 100 meters walk along the battlements, a lot of stairs and spiral staircases, 3 courtyards within the castle, a big meadow behind the castle and a dark wood around the castle complete the unique experience Burg Finstergr├╝n.
