The farming estate and castle belong together not only historically, but are also closely connected as a producer and customer and as an energy supplier and consumer. The estate’s forests supply not only wood as a building material, but are also integrated into daily seminar life as an “outdoor location” for activities. Our guests benefit from it in numerous ways: they enjoy the park, the surroundings, the cuisine with organic products from our own farm, as well as our fine brandies, oils, and vinegars. The principle of sustainability above all – visitors can literally taste it.
Schloss Hohenkammer was acquired and carefully restored by Munich Re in 2003 – also in consideration of their own use. Since then, the reinsurance firm has used Hohenkammer as a seminar and conference centre, as have other major companies and event organisers.
You are looking for a wide variety of tasks to perform; an amiable and well run team is looking forward to welcoming and working together with you. Commitment, initiative and a service-orientated attitude are a given for you? Then, welcome!
You will receive a performance-related above-average pay in a 13-month annual salary, including 30 vacation days per year. We provide your uniforms and their cleaning.

In 1042, the Lords of Camer gave this place “Hohencamer” their name and erected a castle here. The ‘von Camer’ family line resided here for more than 500 years, until they were superseded by the Barons of Haslang. In their regency, the castle was burned down to its walls in 1648 in the final days of the Thirty Years’ War.
The reconstruction of the castle in the Bavarian Renaissance style gave the structure its present form. The von Haslangs lived for nearly 250 years on their castle estate – until it passed into the possession of the von Preysing family in 1804. From then on, the periods of ownership were briefer. The von Preysings were followed by the Lords of Cotta, who, in turn, were replaced by the von Vequel family. In the early 20th century, the castle became the seat of the Bavarian Raiffeisen Central Cooperative, which moved to Hohenkammer in 1917.
The castle was given its present destination in 1973, when it was converted into a training centre. When Munich Re assumed ownership of the estate in 2003, it converted it into a seminar centre.
Respect and curiosity, tradition and innovation, ease and assertion are the framework the walls provide. They express the balance that we want to preserve culturally.
Anyone who believes that art in castles must be surrounded by heavy frames and honorably presented on the walls will find no such thing at Schloss Hohenkammer. Instead, visitors encounter a revival of mural painting, a common art form during the Renaissance: for example, the text sculpture by Lawrence Weiner in the former chapel, or the airy, vegetative murals by Martin Schwenk. Hamish Fulton is the visitors’ artistic companion. Sixty-five of his works of his exploration of all the cardinal points can be found in the rooms of the hotel. The artist has left us a message in his large mural in the entrance area.
Gaze around Schloss Hohenkammer’s Renaissance courtyard while listening to a Bach concert – isn’t this a perfect fit? Yet the courtyard is not the only ideal location here: the entire castle complex offers wonderful opportunities for shows and events of all kinds. If you want to crown your seminar or event with a memorable finale, our consulting team is available to help.

A place that frees one’s head and emits peace is a true Frei Raum (‘free space’). Visitors will find it in the reception building behind the front desk. Photographs, often floor to ceiling in height, present very different castle views, in which many of the castle’s secrets are revealed and its ghosts unmasked.
A contemplative interior garden, just steps away, helps viewers internalise the exhibition.
Those who stroll through the castle hear its sounds. The castle courtyard is perfect for a summer concert, the event hall is ideal for pop and rock, the Zirbelstube needs the zither, and the “Alte Galerie” loves the sound of Bavarian brass bands playing during a Sunday brunch.
An experience to be heard, felt and lived.

The provision of optimal premises and facilities was always a given at Schloss Hohenkammer, as were the corresponding services.
