Situated on an islet in the middle of the Krka River, the castle building, together with its park, paints one of the most picturesque images in the country and is a prominent cultural and natural monument. 

The first historical reference to the castle dates as far back as 1252, when it was part of the Lower Carniolan Freising estate, administered by the de Werde nobles, also known as islet knights. Over the centuries that followed the castle underwent architectural and ownership changes, passing from one noble family to another. Today the castle, restored to its original Gothic and Renaissance splendour, houses one of the most outstanding hotels in Slovenia – the Otočec Castle Hotel. A member of the prestige association of mansions and restaurants Relais & Châteaux, this boutique hotel offers luxurious rooms and suites for the most discerning tastes. Come and experience the times past coupled with all the modern comforts. Enjoy breakfast in bed with a cup of fragrant coffee and slices of warm homemade bread, a whirlpool bath or a refreshing tropical shower in a large bathroom, a gourmet candlelight dinner with select wines and fire crackling in the fireplace, a morning walk along the river waking up to the sound of birds chirping. There are 10 double rooms with a calming view over the Krka River and the park. Carefully chosen furniture in the castle chamber provides with unrivalled comfort. Castle bathroom with a classic or massage bathtub and a rain shower will impress just about anyone with its tiny details. The hotel's culinary masters’ imaginations produce fine dining experiences characterised by exciting flavours and refined dishes. In 2020, they received the prestigious Michelin Plate. Inspectors awarded the castle restaurant and its team headed by chef Nejc Ban, who highlights fresh ingredients and carefully prepared and delicious dishes. They were impressed by the focus on local ingredients and specialities, especially the seasonal offer of fresh vegetables, berries and herbs from the Organic Garden.
