This is the first castle I have ever stayed in and I loved it. It wasn't too done up so it still had the look and feel of an old medieval castle. And there are plenty of plces to explore. We ventured up onto the wall at night and had a beautiful view of the valley, even nicer during the... More

We had a wonderful stay in Oberwesel at Castle Schoenburg. It's exactly like you would dream of, only better! The grounds are beautiful and the staff warm and welcoming. Our room was 3 flights up and no elevator. It's a castle after all - kind of steep but we made it! Lovely room with a small balcony overlooking the Rhine... More

Imagine every wonderful adjective that could describe a hotel stay. That is what we experienced at Schoenburg. If you must pick only one castle to stay in whilst in Germany, this must be your pick. We arrived, and walked through the grounds into the hotel courtyard. This beautiful, 1100+ year old castle has been restored and lovingly cared for by... More

I reckon everyone wants to experience staying in a castle once in their life. Well, I've done it now and I can strongly recommend this delightfully romantic hotel as the place to do it. Perched high over the river Rhine, and overlooking row upon row of local vineyards, this really is the stuff of fairytales. The whole place is a... More

This is the kind of hotel that comes to mind when life gets stressful: close enough to the town of Oberwesel (with access to the train station; taxis are easily available but it is walkable provided there is not too much luggage) Schloss Schoenburg feels wonderfully detached, overlooking the river Rhine in a most sensational setting. We have visited several... More

This hotel is the most romantic place, perhaps in the world. The room prices seem high until you see that the price includes a breakfast buffet (great buffet by the way) and a fantastic dinner with wine. The service is above fantastic, the rooms are so beautiful and well appointed. The beds are so comfortable and nothing beats these views.... More

A wonderful place to stay and although we had high expectations before we arrived, we were definitely not disappointed. The staff were all very friendly, the food was superb, the room and view were magnificent. We arrived by train so the walk up the hill with our rolling luggage was a challenge, but added to the adventure. The hotel will... More

A castle on the Rhine...not a bad way to begin our week long driving tour. It was a little tricky driving up to the castle and then figuring out where to park but once that was accomplished we were absolutely blown away by the authentic feel and breathtaking views. It is quite a steep hike to the castle itself from... More

We stayed 2 nights in this absolutely wonderful "Castle Hotel". History apparent everywhere and a very special ambient feeling in the air. Very Romantic! ... and a dream for any photographer. The views as well as the castle itself. We had a suite which was furnished in an authentic style. A beautiful bathroom with a bath with lion feet. Fod... More

Lovely experience. Good service, lovely grounds, a photographers heaven (the gardens and views are a must). Dinner is included, which was elegant and delicious (with excellent and friendly service). The rooms are also lovely (nice concept with the free mini bar - though it is only juice, water and beer). They also have complimentary fruit and sherry in your room!... More
