The legendary Schloss by lake Wörthersee
Walnut, marble, mirrors, leaf golf finishes, a tiled stove in Empire style and a sonorous baby grand piano give the bar style and elegance. Udo Jürgens often sat at the piano. Did you also hear “Merci Cherie”? In any case, the bar guests say: Merci for the nice, sociable hours.
The most beautiful bar in Austria
Those who like to be the center of attention can sit at the oval bar and, in summer, on the terrace with a stunning view.
Over 400 bottles sit on the shelves of the Schlossbar. The selection of whisk(e)y with more than 60 types of bourbon, scotch and Irish whiskey is impressive. One novelty is the range of chocolates that go with the whisk(e)ys from the Carinthian chocolate manufactory Craigher.
Statesman Winston Churchill liked to do it. Even non-statesmen do it at the Seefels: They smoke their cigars with pleasure - in the wonderful outdoor cigar lounge with a lake view. Davidoff, Romeo y Julieta, Santa Damiana and Cohiba keep their freshness and aroma in the humidor.
Bar manager Christoph Turian shakes, floats and stirs cocktails with enthusiasm. When asked about the most popular cocktails, he named Bellini, Fraisini and Testarossa for women, Martini cocktails and Bottle Aged Negroni for men. Vermouth is well-known and trendy right now.
Up to 30 types of tea from the renowned Ronnefeld tea house are on the tea menu. The hot drink is served in a cast iron Ronnefeld jug with five types of sugar - pure or accompanied by freshly baked cakes or strudel, light and airy macarons, fine tea cakes or small piquants.
As the regular guitarist of Franco Andolfo, Diego Piotto played in the finest nightclubs in the world. In the summer he appears in the Schlossbar every Friday from 9 p.m. The baby grand piano invites guests to spontaneous appearances like Udo Jürgens back then, for whom the Udo Jürgens luxury suite was created in honor.
Open daily from 2.30 p.m.
"We had just one night after a cracking wedding nearby in Seefels. The staff were fantastic and the room we had was perfect. The whole place is perfect - especially the breakfast balcony overlooking the lake and the boat bar/restaurant on the lake."CousinD_13, June 2018 • TripAdvisor
"My wife and I stayed for a week at the Schloss Seefels. Fantastic hotel, very clean, spacious room (suite with lake view and balcony), beautiful lake, good restaurants, friendly staff, good massage. It comes at a price but it is clearly worth it."RudyD06, August 2019 • Tripadvisor
"Not the first time we've stayed at this grand lakeside hotel, and it won't be the last. After a long 3 day motorcycle ride from the UK it felt familiar and comfortable to be back at the Seefels. If anything the staff have upped their game to even better service levels, the food is superb, breakfast a treat and in the glamorous bar the chief bar-tender is a true delight. Room was sparkling clean and the location is truly stunning. Reception staff back up smiles with Austrian efficiency. Can't fault it."John, September 2019 • Tripadvisor
"Great setting, right on the shores of the Worthersee lake. Rooms are clean and modern. Balconies have views of the lake. Service is generally very good. The highlight is their spa which all guests have access to, including multiple saunas and steam baths and a whirpool."Matt Hellin, August 2018 • Google
"My family started taking me here in the 1960s. Have visited numerous times but only between June and September [high season] but never a zoo of tourists. Five star service, cuisine and old fashioned Austrian Gemuetlichkeit. Romantic, quiet and lots of water sports and hiking around the Alps. Visiting for sure in September when things quiet down."DoubleDee2020, March 2019 • Tripadvisor
