The lightest of breezes will cast the rustling leaves in the park aloft. The flutter of wings will announce the return of the stork to its home in the castle house tower. And don’t be surprised to hear the ducks calling to one another as they play hide and seek among the water lilies. The bathhouse will resound to the sound of flailing birch besoms, while the paintbrush caresses the canvas as it strives to render this scene immortal.
Accommodation in Design Rooms
Hotel rooms in Bīriņi Castle itself and the Gardener’s House in the Castle garden have been arranged according to a special design, with aristocratic charm, allowing guests to enjoy the feelings, which were formerly only available to folk from the loftiest social circles.
The vaulted hall of the Castle is always home to a celebration of flavour, offering refined dishes prepared with taste, which will not disappoint even the most spoiled of gourmands. On leisurely mornings in particular, you can enjoy an unhurried breakfast in your room or an invigorating cup of coffee on the lake side of the Castle’s garden terrace.
Castle parks and Arbours
The castle’s parks have been lovingly developed by a number of owners of the Castle – each doing so for the love of his life, paying builders a king’s ransom to ensure that they built Love Isle, Eņģeļkalns and Priežkalns Park with joy in their hearts and so that their magical quality would spread joy and calm life’s storms.
During a swim in the tranquil waters of Bīriņi lake, you will never lose sight of the majestic Castle, all the while enjoying an invigorating experience for body and soul, truly worthy of the aristocracy. After basking in the sun, you will also enjoy the refreshment of a dip in Dzirnezers, before a visit to the summer café in the old Water Mill building.
Sitting comfortably on the park benches, leafing through a book from the park library, you are not only turning the pages, but whole centuries, living out events in your imagination from episodes in the lives of the former lords of the castle.
Stable, Sleigh Rides
You will get a different view of Bīriņi Castle park and gardens with a ride in a carriage in summer or in a sleigh in winter, which will faithfully be pulled by the horses residing in the stables. At the stables, you can choose a suitable horse for a ride, enthuse about a white pony or admire the lively play of regally bred rabbits in the rabbit building.
Premises for Events
In the ornate halls of the Castle, thoughts and conversations will flow easily during work discussions, while true smiles will be augmented by quick steps and dances, as you enjoy receptions and parties in the Castle’s premises or celebrate an unforgettable wedding.
