Come spend an enjoyable afternoon with us in our home. Together, we’ll explore what it means to live in a castle and the demands and gifts that come with true love.
“My dream came true in 2015 when my husband and I moved into the wild and unspoilt Eschelberg Castle, and I started supporting people in their personal and professional development. This place has a certain power that can work wonders. I’ll give you some insight into this miracle, leading you into relaxing stillness. Together, we will explore the secret of “immersive awareness”. Experience the soul of this place with me and let my enthusiasm and stamina inspire you. And who knows! Maybe your dreams will soon come true as well!” – Lady of the castle Veronika, who introduces her guests to the castle’s magical secrets.
“The crypt under the chapel is the final rest of Esther von Gera and Christoph von Gera, who built this castle. Sometimes, I browse Esther’s diaries, in which she composed love notes to her husband. I’ll read to you from those diaries. We also value love highly; in our work as couple’s coaches with couples who come to the castle; when I write books, articles, poems and songs; but also in my work as a university lecturer for Business Ethics. It was here at the castle that I developed my system for the Economics of Love. I’m going to share thoughts, texts and impulses from all of these areas with you. We’ll discover many little “treasures of love” as we visit the curious little chapel with its two altars, take a walk through the empty castle and visit the ancient chestnut tree.” – Author and lord of the castle Harald.
About the castle
The renaissance castle in the hilly region called “Mühlviertel” has been lovingly restored without losing its fragile charm. It’s both ephemeral thanks to the passage of time and alive with archaic power. Eschelberg Castle doesn’t present itself to visitors — it wants to be actively explored. It comes alive with and revives through therapeutic stillness.
