Absolutely beautiful and stunning castle. Well appointed rooms with complimentary sherry and sodas. Fantastic water pressure in the shower. Comfortable beds. Decent hair dryer. Decent wi-fi. Incredible public spaces to explore: bocce court, life sized chess board, outdoor snooker table, cliffside reading room, ponds, family cemetery, turrets, walls, nooks, and crannies galore. Give yourself a day to just take in... More

Wow - we were awed. Several other reviewers took some of my comments. The garden and grounds beg to be explored: an adult "tree house", life size chess board, and an African themed reading "room" which was a hexagonal free standing small building overlooking the valley and Rhine. It was crazy climbing upstairs to our room (even after taking the... More

We stayed one night at Auf Schoenburg. We had rooms 19 and 20. Both were charming and first class down to the small details. Our room had a small balcony overlooking the Rhine. The castle was great fun to explore. We spent most of our time walking around the grounds which includes a very large garden. There is a cozy... More

As you boat on the Rhine, this castle hotel at Oberwesel can be viewed on a hilltop overlooking the river. It is a "not to be missed" chance of a lifetime. We were a party of 3 adults so had to book a suite, but it was totally worth it. Sleep in a 4 poster bed? Check. Terrace overlooking the... More

We included this castle as a stop along our way to Sweden. We explored the castle with what we thought was top to bottom but as we found out to search this castle from top to bottom would take several days. I have visited other castles but this was an amazing experience. The castle is maintained exquisitely and the staff... More

Our trip along the Rhine included a stay here "Castle Auf Schoenburg" in June 2011......words can barely begin to describe the views, the service, the castle, the accommodations and the food! I highly recommend this hotel and the surrounding areas of Oberswesel and St Goar are a treat also!

The hole experience was fantastic: the landscaping, the mood created by the castle, food was amazing (four course dinner and a lavish breakfast), room was awesome, it was perfect in every sense. I absolutely recomend it!!!

Words can hardly express the breathtaking views over the Rhine from our very lovely room. (Not all rooms have Rhine views). Parking is a bit limited and distant but this is completely overcome by the excellent concierge service available. The Castle is original and unique and the interior is kept as close to the original as convenience will allow. We... More

We just had a wonderful time here. It seems a lot of people just stay for a night or 2 as they travel through the Rhine. We stayed 4 nights in room 16. The room was very nice and had a lovely little balcony. Breakfast was very good and the dinner excellent. The set dinner menu was generally fine but... More
