Maria-Loretto Castle is located in the eastern bay of Lake Wörthersee on the Maria Loretto peninsula, next to the mouth of the Lend Canal in the city of Klagenfurt am Wörthersee. Since the castle had been owned by the Orsini-Rosenberg family since its construction, it was acquired by the city of Klagenfurt at the end of 2002. The building and the park were renovated in 2007 and opened to the public. A private company currently operates an event centre on the grounds of the castle.
