History & Philosophy
Schloss Wartegg looks back on a vivid traditional history. Built in 1557 by Kaspar Blauer von Wartensee as former manor, it has been used over time as refuge and exile. Also Empress Zita found refuge here after the empire ended
During the last renovations in 1929, staircase and Turquoise Bath using Persian lace techniques were integrated, after that the castle ruined visibly. 1994, the Mijnssen’s took over the castle and a large part of the park, and they renovated it to be today’s sustainable modern hotel.
The in 1860 arranged park nowadays enthuses visitors as national garden monument. The Foundation Landscape Park Wartegg, the Development Association Wartegg and Culture Association Wartegg enable artistic and cultural developments at the castle.
A true highlight at Schloss Wartegg are the castle owned Bündner Oberländer Sheep, an endangered breed. Vitality and adaptability characterize this special breed, that is quite similar to the original sheep breed.
The idea originally arose to revive the park and also for landscape conservation reasons, as the sheep will make all mowing dispensable. From spring to autumn the sheep graze and move in the park, while in winter they enjoy their hay at a stationary place. With the lamb’s wool is used for spinning wool and to make blankets from it that are then sold.
Occasionally the guests can benefit from the local meat that the free-range sheep provide. Schloss Wartegg contributes to give a future to the noble race.
