At the heart of history for centuries, enclosed by picturesque stone walls, this castle was both a residence and fortress for the nobility. Nowadays, every summer the castle echoes with the sound of classical music during Sigulda’s world famous opera festival. The proximity of the Gauja and the wild river valley form a unique backdrop for enjoyment of the works of art wrought by man and nature. The soft sounds of music from the castle garden and the reverberations from the creative quarter enliven the harmonious atmosphere of the castle. Merging with the elegant neo-gothic architecture, a visit to the castle acquires a fine and noble aftertaste.
Far away from the worldly hustle and bustles, surrounded by tranquil forests, travellers are welcomed by romantic Kārļamuiža. The untouched nature of the River Amata, landscaped park created by the lords of the manor and century-old apple orchard offer a refreshing hiding place amidst this beauty. In turn, the invigorating quality of nature can be felt on the peaceful walking trails, which wend their way alongside the river to the landscaped cliff and back again. After enjoying a walk in the cusp of nature, you can relax in the hotel apartments, which have been installed in accordance with the manor’s former residents’ impressions of homeliness. This is the embodiment of peaceful rest amidst the natural tranquillity of nature and gardens, which are enclosed by the majesty of the Amata’s cliffs.
