History of your castle hotel in Salzburg

Chronicles of your castle hotel in Salzburg

The velnerable walls of our Hotel Schloss Mönchstein*****s already speak volumes. Go on an exciting journey through time and have a look at the most important milestones in the history of our castle hotel in Salzburg.

1350  The "Mönchstein" was initially mentioned in a document as "Tower of Tetelheim".
1531  Virgil Fröschlmoser attached a house, stables, a barn and a chapel to the small castle. He also built a stone tower and shortly afterwards a cistern at the rock cone.
1622 The castle was sold to the monastery Mülln. "Archbishop Paris Lodron" ordered to build fortifications such as the gate "Monika", the Augustinian gate and a drawbridge.
1643 According to Philipp Harpf the Mönchstein was enlarged to a three-storey tower.
1654 The monastery St. Peter acquired the property for the "Educated Gentlemen Professors" for "recreation after hard mental work". In these days it was called "Castle of the professors".
1661 On the 3rd August the chapel was solemnly consecrated. The present tower room was used as astronomical observatory.
Already then the Mönchstein has been famous amongst famous people ... Catherine the Great for example thanked the hosts for their hospitality and gave them a belt ribbon, the Princess of Liechtenstein had "her own stone bench at the garden shed to overview Salzburg", and the poet Alexander von Humboldt wrote a passionate paper about this "piece of paradise" in the city of Mozart.
The banker Leitner had a street built up the Mönchsberg which goes from Mülln to the station of his own built electric elevator. This elevator was ...
... then purchased by the township and existed until after the Second World War. Only then the elevator "Mönchsberg" was relocated into the inside of the rock.
The castle was extended significantly.
