The Castle

Wild vine and ivy cling to the yellow facades. Coats of arms, old wrought-iron windows, weathered baptismal fonts and late Roman sarcophagi and fountains remind us of past owners of the castle. Today’s appearance of the buildings dates back to Friedrich Graf von Vieregg who commissioned the redesign of the baroque site between 1802 and  816. Between 1869 and 1880, the Tutzing castle was owned by Eduard von Hallberger, founder of the Deutsche Verlagsanstalt publishing company. From 1921 until his death in 1930, the internationally renowned Jewish art collector Marczell von Nemes, of Hungarian origin, resided in the castle. During the Third Reich, the industrialist and catholic centrist politician Albert Hackelsberger was the owner of the property. He lost his life in a prison of the German Gestapo in 1940. In the 1940s, the castle was owned by the Kaselowsky and Oetker families, who turned it over to the Innere Mission, a German charity, aft er WWII. In 1947, Bishop Dr. theol. Hans Meiser decided to found the Evangelische Akademie Tutzing at this location. Over time the castle area was expanded by including the estate buildings, redesigning the orangery into a ballroom, and adding the rotunda.


The Park

Its unique location on the shores of Lake Starnberg and the vast grounds with their population of century-old trees turn the castle park, laid out in the style of an English landscape garden, into an unrivalled natural monument - with a view of the picturesque backdrop of the Alps’ Karwendel, Wetterstein and Zugspitze mountains.
