Hotel Schloss Seefels

Historic background

The worlds first post card was sent from the Schloss Seefels

Dr. Emanuel HerrmannOnce upon a time there was a rich man with a taste for the picturesque, who made amazing dream cometrue by building a nice little palace in the bay at Pörtschach.Thus it was in 1860 that the philatelist and inventor of the postcard, Dr. Emanuel Herrmann, built Schloss Seefels on the banks of Lake Wörthersee. 35 years ago, the previous owners converted the palace into a luxury hotel.



Lounch of a post cardThe Seefels a venerable castle according to its origin, however in the style new, surprising and unconventional. The octagonal tower of this beautiful summer palace, built during the reign of Emperor Franz Joseph, is reflected in the clear blue waters of Pörtschach Lake. What could be more romantic than dining beneath the elegant glass roof of the Belle Epoque veranda or eating on the terrace as the breeze wafts the scent of flowers past your table? Castles are often build on rocks. The Castle Seefels stands on rock overlooking the whole Lake called "Wörthersee". Many say that is the most beautiful place at the Lake.
