Located west of Brixlegg, fairytale-like Matzen Castle is set in a truly magical setting. The delightful English landscape garden of the castle is a romantic oasis to sit and muse or just escape the ‘madding crowd’. Dating from the late 19th century, the beautiful garden's centrepiece – the Lion Pond and the Carp Pond with the Nympheum, a sanctuary consecrated to water nymphs, reflects the former epicurean philosophy and lifestyle of the castle. Enjoy the tranquillity and beauty of the ornamental gardens adjoining Matzen Castle and relax afterwards in Gut Matzen Café & Restaurant – the perfect place to unwind while enjoying local fare, fish and meat specialties, and international cuisine. When the weather’s fine, head to the lovely outdoor eating place next to the romantic fish pond and enjoy the terrific views onto the castle. Little ones will love the playground on the castle grounds.
