Castles of Urstein
Urstein is an unqiue place in the village of Puch south of Salzburg. There are two castles, the campus of the University of Applied Sciences and an adjacent land is under construction for further expansion, also for startups.
First documented in 1151 A.D. the place has developed over the past centuries. Today the old castle – the yellow castle, also called Meierei - was completed in 1461 A.D., is used by the University of Applied Sciences and Silicon Castles who sees great value in the proximity to the university.

The new castle – the light red castle - was built in 1691 A.D. and home of various aristocratic Salzburg families. Since early 2000 the castle is owned by the Chamber of Commerce Salzburg and dedicated to education purposes only. The Akademie Schloss Urstein Privatstiftung is operating the castle. Silicon Castles is proud that this castle is the home of the SEA.
