Planning for a restaurant in the historical castle Burg Forchtenstein; choice of surface materials and furnishings.
The majestic Burg Forchtenstein is the seat of the Esterházy family near Mattersburg in the Austrian Federal State of Burgenland. The new Café Grenadier in the central area of the castle is a restaurant for day visitors and a venue for events, with rooms available for seminars and meetings. The restaurant area is directly adjacent to the castle walls. The interior design cites elements of the historical castle such as oak parquet, masonry and riveted iron fittings and marries these with modern architecture. The result is a design that is both timeless and effortless.
