History Monday, 14. July 2014
Schloss Prielau was first documented in 1425, with a Christian Glaser zu Prielau named. In the 16th century the castle was rebuilt and gained the design it keeps today.
Over the following centuries, Schloss Prielau changed owners many times. The last prince bishop to use the castle was Sigmund Christoph von Zeil and Trauchburg. His emblem can still be seen today at the castle gate.
In 1932 Gerti von Hofmannsthal, the widow of Hugo von Hofmannsthal, bought the estate and restored the castle. In the Second World War the family was dispossessed and sculptor Josef Thorak was able to acquire the castle. After the war the Hofmannsthal family then had their estate returned.
In 1987 the Porsche family bought the property and converted the castle into a hotel.
Since 2004 the castle has been managed by Anette and Andreas Mayer, who treat guests at the hotel and Mayer’s gourmet restaurant.

Welcome to Schloss Prielau! Tuesday, 1. April 2014
Schloss Prielau is located in idyllic grounds, just 200 metres from the north shore of Lake Zell. The former residence of writer Hugo von Hofmannsthal’s family was first documented in 1425. Since the 1980s, Schloss Prielau has been owned by the Porsche family, who converted it into a luxury hotel.
Anette and Andreas Mayer have been your hosts since 2004 and spoil hotel guests and visitors to MAYER’s gourmet restaurant with plenty of love and personal care. They have seven double rooms, two suites and an apartment in the fishing lodge available. The rooms are furnished in a rural style yet possess all the comfort of an international four-star hotel. Fires and tiled stoves create plenty of opportunity to snuggle up in a romantic atmosphere.
Delicious breakfasts are served in the cosy castle kitchens, where you can also while away the lunchtime and the afternoon. On the terrace, with its view of the castle grounds, you can enjoy the sun and the tranquillity while you watch the on-site deer.
In the rustic bathhouse you can relax with a visit to the sauna and steam bath or treat yourself to a massage. Thanks to the unique surroundings and dreamlike location, Schloss Prielau is the perfect venue for your wedding or family celebration for up to 300 people.
We look forward to seeing you!
I think of you, of my castle, of my Prielau.
