Stylish entertainment in the Schlossbar with a view of the lake.
The bar in Hotel Schloss Seefels is classic and tasteful. It is located in the historic part of the hotel, the polygonal tower - a gem of Wörthersee architecture. Walnut wood, marble, chandeliers, mirrors, and gold leaf embellishments stylishly harmonise with the designer colours of bordeaux and ochre. The small bay window with a view of the lake invites you to enjoy intimate conversations. Or if you prefer the spotlight, you can sit at the oval bar and in summer on the terrace with the stylish lounge furniture and gorgeous view.
Over 400 bottles adorn the shelfs and over 100 drinks make the bar menu an encyclopaedia of bar drinks. The selection of Whisky/whiskey and gin is impressive. Fans of grain distillates can choose from more than 60 varieties of bourbon, scotch, and Irish whiskey. One special feature is the 25-year old Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky. Or would you prefer gin and Monkey 47 made from 47 plant ingredients in its unmistakable brown apothecary bottle with the monkey on the label in the form of a stamp? Voilà. Cheers!
The most popular cocktails
For 17 years, Christoph Turian has been enthusiastically shaking, stirring, and mixing cocktails at the Seefels. He loves his job at the Schlossbar. "It is a great honour to work with such high-quality and exclusive ingredients", says the amiable bartender. When asked what the most popular cocktails are, he mentions the Bellini, Fraisini, and Testarossa for women and martini cocktails such as the bottle-aged Negroni for men. The current trend leans towards lighter alcoholic drinks such as the Sea Breeze.
It’s teatime at Schloss Seefels
The wonderful tiled stove in a Neo-Renaissance style radiates cosy warmth. Tea by the renowned Ronnefeld brand warms you from within. Up to 30 tea varieties are available on the tea menu. This hot drink is served in the Schlossbar in a cast-iron Ronnefeld pot with 5 types of sugar. How about a piece of cake or pie from the Seefels patisserie? Or something off the menu like a club sandwich, carpaccio of Lavanttal Wagyu beef, tarte flambée, and other small treats?
Live music in the Schlossbar
In summer, Diego Piotto plays live with his guitar every Friday at 9 pm in the Schlossbar. Diego Piotto was born in Padua and has Italian music in his blood. As the guitarist of Franco Andolfo, he has played in the finest night clubs all over the world. The grand piano in the bar entices many guests to put on spontaneous performances in the bar. The most famous was undoubtedly Udo Jürgens. As a guest at the hotel, he would end his evening in the Schlossbar by sitting down at the piano and playing. In fact, the Tower suite is named after him.

"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
