The first mention of Chateau Berchtold dates from the 14th century, although during the 20th century it was almost completely devastated. Fortunately in 2005, the owner has changed and restored the Chateau to its present form.

As a result a great hotel complex has been opened back in 2011 in a chateau and apart from the attractions I mentioned above it includes also sport and wellness center and delicious restaurant.
