Mission statement

Bildungshaus Schloss Retzhof is an education provider for adults which follows the european guiding idea of Lifelong learning. It also strives to make education for adults accessible to everybody - that also includes people with disabilities.

Main activities

Without borders
The Retzhof has been an further educational institute of the state of Styria since 1948.

Due to it's decades-long importance for Austrian further education and its good and varied international contacts, the Retzhof has made its mark on further education both within Austria and beyond its borders.

Its location makes the Retzhof especially interesting for cross-border co-operations and meetings with our neighbours in the Alpe-Adria region.

Retzhof stands for quality and innovation in further education. It has an international orientation and is non-denominational and cross-cultural.

What we do
We plan and organise seminars, symposia, conferences, congresses, workshops and cultural events on topical themes, as well as stage active days and project weeks for schools.

The Retzhof provides the ideal surroundings for educational outdooractivities with individual supervision.

We also offer guests the opportunity to stage their own events at the Retzhof using the house's professional equipment.

Barrier free for everyone!
The new barrier-free guesthouse and the castle buildings with its seminar rooms and the Castle Tavern also offer disabled people the possibility to organise educational and cultural events or to participate in them.

The Retzhof Further Educational Institute strives to maintain the highest possible level of barrier-freedom by making available its infrastructure and educational opportunities to everyone.
