The Snežnik Castle lies at the end of the Loka Valley. Today it is removed form main roads, but once it was an important part of the amber and later Roman and medieval routes toward the centre of Europe.
Due to the fact that the castle retained its form and furnishings that were left by the last owners, the Saxon princes of Schönburg Waldenburg despite numerous wars, until the ongoing restoration, the Castle enabled an insight into the lives of hunting and holiday residences by the lake on the borderline of Snežnik's forests and the quietness of the unspoiled nature of the Loka Valley.
All these characteristics attract hikers, bikers, lonely admirers of forest life and sensitive lovers of floral bounty to this valley and to the slopes of the mighty namesake, the Snežnik Mountain.
Restoration of the castle:
Due to ongoing restoration, the castle will be closed to visitors for the next two years. However, a part of the collection of furniture from the last two centuries can be seen in the nearby mansion Dornava near Ptuj, while the dormouse collection will be open for visitors at a nearby farm.
