Established at the turn of the 10th and 11th centuries, Lake Castle Ort is today one of the best-recognized tourist facilities in Austria. Its picturesque location on a small island, connected with the Toscana peninsula with a 123-meter long wooden bridge, makes it a popular motif of advertisements promoting the region Salzkammergut.

Today, in the elegant interiors of Lake Castle Ort, more than 300 weddings are organized annually. Of course, there is also room for other meetings, for example company events or just family meetings.
