CASTLE BREAKFAST BASKET

Want to add the final touch to your castle experience? In the carefully prepared CASTLE BREAKFAST BASKET, you will be greeted by products from the surrounding farms and homesteads of the Kozjansko region, a special castle experience you won’t forget.

The Castle Breakfast combines carefully selected and prepared local produce, lovingly prepared by our local producers, whose diligent and skilful hands take care of every detail of your castle experience.

The main guiding principles of our operation, as one of the largest and oldest regional parks in Slovenia, are to support local producers, maintain the quality of food, and cultivate a positive relationship with the environment we live in. Homemade bread, jam and spreads, honey, juice, and meats, cheese made from the milk of cows grazing on the surrounding pastures, will greet you as soon as you open the lid of our castle breakfast basket! FEELING HUNGRY ALREADY?

You can enjoy the breakfast basket in the comfort of your castle room, in the castle hall where you will also find a coffee machine and a tea corner, on the sunny courtyard of the castle under the mighty chestnut trees, by the nearby pond on a picnic blanket provided by us, on a nearby meadow, or in a forest clearing.

Discover the richness of flavours lovingly prepared by our local producers.
