Many guests come to our organic castle hotel in eastern Switzerland not only because of the wonderful location on Lake Constance in the midst of unique nature, the beautiful rooms, the English park or the fine cuisine of our organic restaurant - they especially appreciate the personal atmosphere in our hotel. We want our guests to feel at home, as if they were staying with good friends. You will feel it when you are served your coffee with a friendly smile in the early morning.

History

Schloss Wartegg in its present appearance is a multi-part, representative stone building with characteristic stepped gables and a striking tower. The first castle was built in 1557 by Kaspar Blarer von Wartensee, the bishop's bailiff in Arbon, on the site of a former estate. In the course of an eventful history, new lords of the castle moved into Wartegg again and again.

In 1860, the estate came into the possession of the Duchess and Regent Louise of Bourbon-Parma, who added extensions to the main building to the east and south and laid out an extensive English garden. The prestigious complex with a view of Lake Constance also served as accommodation for numerous noble guests and eventually as an exile, such as Zita of Bourbon-Parma, who was married to the last Austrian emperor. She found refuge in Schloss Wartegg with her children for a few months after the end of the Empire in 1919. In 1928, the entire complex was acquired by the German industrialist Dr Gustav Mez, who subjected the castle to extensive renovation. After he moved out, the house stood empty for many years, which in some cases caused great damage to the historic fabric of the building. In 1994, the property came into the possession of the current owners, who, with the support of the preservation of historical monuments, carefully converted the complex and its rooms into a contemporary hotel business. The damage to the building fabric, some of which was extensive, necessitated numerous far-reaching interventions, but it was still possible to preserve a number of historic components of the main building. A unique feature is the bathing oval built in 1928, which is still available to hotel guests today as a Turkish bath. The Wartegg Hotel has been a member of Swiss Historic Hotels since 2005.

Organic restaurant at the highest level

Herbs, vegetables, berries and flowers are grown on 2500 m2 in our own biodynamic castle and ProSpecieRara variety garden. For us, "organic" is not just any certificate, but meaningful enjoyment from nature. In between, coffee with homemade cakes, homemade ice cream and sorbet, as well as selected organic teas.
