I literally planned our two-week Paris/Germany itinerary around the availability of the room I wanted in the castle. It was worth it!! Getting there: We took a cruise from Koblenz to Oberwesel. A taxi drove us up the loooong, steep hill to the castle. The next day, we taxied to the train station. The property: Amazing! Various gardens & pathways... More

We stayed here for one night, before leaving for Frankfort. The kids absolutely loved it! We arrived in the afternoon, after checking into our room we checked out the grounds. I highly recommend taking a few hours to explore the grounds, they are simply amazing! We had so much fun playing outdoor chess, darts, checking out all of the outbuildings... More

You're staying in a castle. 'Nuff said! Views are fantastic, the owners have also landscaped the back of the grounds creating a pleasant secret garden with several levels that you can explore. They put a lot of work into it - treehouses, little sheds, water features and so on. The rooms are old obviously and Internet was a bit patchy,... More

My husband treated me to the Falconsuite #24 for my birthday this past weekend. The hotel was unique and lovely if not a bit dated - though that is expected of a castle, naturally, and added to the charm. What a fun time pretending to be a king and queen! We loved the room and winding around the maze of... More

A little pricey, but probably one of the best hotels I've ever stayed in. The staff were very helpful and accommodating. Room had a fantastic view, high over the Rhine. Minor quibble, the trains run seemingly all night long...but thats the whole of the Rhine. The castle itself is the genuine article...lots of small rooms and hidden spaces. Outdoor grounds... More

Wow! I was worried I had overhyped our castle stay, but it was everything I'd hoped for. We had room 24 (the falcon suite) where our boys slept like pageboys in purpose built sideboards along the walls of the lounge room - they loved it! The view was spectacular over two sides of the castle and blissfully quiet. In the... More

I decided to surprise my wife wife a couple nights stay at Castle Hotel Auf Schoenburg at the mid point of our 18 day Christkindlmarkt vacation. First because she loves castles, and second we needed a break. She was quite literally blown away, when she saw the room with a balcony over looking the Rhine she actually teared up. During... More

Our stay was AHHHMAZING...even at the end of December!! Meals are included in the price for adults, not positive about children's prices, as we didn't have anyone under 21 in our party. Drinks are extra w/the meal, but that is not an issue because you DO get 4 bottles of water, 3 types of juices, 1 bottle of beer, and... More

Our daughter's dream to stay in a castle while we were in Germany ended up being the most amazing experience! We were cared for by the friendly, excellent staff (most of whom spoke excellent English), and ate fantastic meals during our 2 night stay. The garden, with its many nooks, games, and gazebos was a delight, even in dreary December.... More

My husband made me a surprise during our vacation: booked a room in Auf Schoenburg. I was dreamed of staying in a Hotel/Castle as I am just passionate by castles. The experience is just amazing. You feel living in a castle, from the room that is unbelievable and totally adapted to the decoration and style from the castle time. The... More
