What can you do here?
Schloss Heroldeck is a majestic castle tucked away on the slopes of Austria’s Lake Millstatt. It is owned and run by Calvary Chapel churches and the staff are wonderful. There are several ski areas nearby, but given we travel so late in the season we often ski at the Mölltal Glacier. This is Carinthia's only glacier ski area and provides superb conditions for fantastic days in the high mountains all winter, spring and into early summer.
Schloss Heroldeck is an amazing venue for an SU camp – it has a great meeting room, a prayer room at the top of one of the castle’s turrets, a fantastic dining hall, plenty of lounge rooms for small groups and socialising, and a cellar café selling the most awesome pizza and milkshakes. The castle has dormitory style bedrooms, accommodating between 4 and 10 campers. Each of these rooms has en suite toilet and shower facilities, and there are also additional showers on each floor.
The castle has beautiful gardens with a view of Lake Millstatt. In previous years we have enjoyed some sunny apres ski times sitting on the swings or playing football in the garden. We usually walk to Millstatt village, which is only 15 minutes away, on Saturday for lunch.
