There’s something for everyone in the family here in Marchfeld, an outing full of experiences and thrills, with interactive adventure paths, petting zoo, children’s theatre and the Children’s and Family World in the Bäckenhof. The Baroque Schloss Hof in the east of Lower Austria not far from the Austrian-Slovakian border is a synthesis of all the arts. Once founded in 1725 by Prince Eugene of Savoy, the magnificent palace with its luxurious Baroque gardens and the idyllic estate farm still invites visitors today to enjoy all kinds of experiences, to relax, celebrate and marvel – a fascinating trip of discovery for all the family! 

Petting zoo for big and small

You can meet white donkeys, Jezersko-Solčava sheep, pygmy goats, alpacas, Bactrian camels and a great variety of other quadrupeds in the Schloss Hof world of animals. More than two hundred animals live here and graze in the paddocks and parade on the pastures – and the petting zoo gives you a unique chance of coming up close to them.

Slip into the role of a serving maid or a stable lad and combine work and fun at the Baroque estate farm at Schloss Hof. As soon as you have solved all your tasks, at the end a little reward will be waiting for you!

The Children’s and Family World in the Bäckenhof, a part of the Baroque estate farm, awaits you not only to the interactive exhibition, but also to theatre plays, dancing, do-it-yourself crafts, painting and dressing up.
