The Castle ruins of ‘Burgruine Staatz’ are situated on the top of a hill in the middle of Staatz-Kautendorf. They are freely accessible throughout the year. There are guided tours from May until October, always on Sundays at 3pm.
Below the castle ‘Burgruine Staatz’ is one of the biggest open air stages in Austria, with 1200 seats. Musicals are regularly performed throughout the Summer. These summer shows, beneath this nearly one thousand year old castle, are spectacularly and extravagantly illuminated at night time, making it an unforgettable experience.
Also, at the foot of the castle ruins, there is a café owned by a Dutch Chocolate manufacturer, which is well worth a visit. It has been awarded a number of “International Chocolate Awards”. It is possible to watch the manufacturers in action, making the chocolates and then, of course, later savouring some of these delicious products.
