Super nice place. Is still being renovated, but the gastronomy is open and the staff is super friendly. Here you can linger and let your soul dangle on a hike or bike tour to strengthen yourself. Recommended. ??

A journey into the past. Great that something new is emerging here. At the moment "only" the beer garden (Sat & Sun from 12 p.m.) is open due to the construction work on the castle. Definitely worth a visit. Here you can relax (very relaxed, quiet music in the background) and enjoy cold drinks, as well as coffee, cake and a small snack. We are looking forward to the opening of further areas and will definitely be back ??.

Es wird zwar noch gebaut, aber der Biergarten von Schloss Petershagen ist nun wieder geöffnet. Es gibt dort an den Wochenenden zu fairen Preisen Getränke, Kuchen und Kleinigkeiten zum Essen, die man beim Springbrunnen im Schlosshof zu sich nehmen kann. Dabei kann man an den alten Schlossmauern zahlreiche Details entdecken. Sehr nettes Personal sorgt für einen angenehmen Aufenthalt. Es hat uns sehr gut gefallen.

The beer garden has been open in the inner courtyard since May 1st, 2022. At the WEEKEND you can also order a cool drink and/or eat something small. Otherwise you can sit down and let the ancient walls work on you ^^ ? How beautiful ?? The interior of the castle will only be opened later, as a number of maintenance works have to be carried out. I'm already looking forward to a delicious beer ☺

Trencín Castle

Trenčín Castle is relatively large renovated castle, towering on a steep limestone cliff directly above the city of Trenčín. It is a dominant feature not only of Trenčín, but also of the entire Považie region. The castle is a national monument.

History of the castle cliff dates back to the Roman Empire, what is proved by the inscription on the castle cliff proclaiming the victory of Roman legion against Germans in the year 179.

Today’s castle was probably built on the hill-fort. The first proven building on the hill was the Great Moravian rotunda from the 9th century and later there was a stone residential tower, which served to protect the Kingdom of Hungary and the western border. In the late 13th century the castle became a property of Palatine Matúš Csák, who became Mr. of Váh and Tatras.

Matúš Csák of Trenčín built a tower, still known as Matthew’s, which is a dominant determinant of the whole building.
