I stayed in Wernberg for a few days during a recent business trip, and I had the pleasure of going to Restaurant Kastell twice during my stay. The restaurant is located within Hotel Burg Wernberg, a renovated castle. I had heard that the chef, Thomas Kellerman, received two Michelin stars. I had... read more

Great historic place. So happy I stayed in a castle rather than a regular modern hotel. Great place for weddings or just to celebrate a birthday. Very comfortable beds and the food was good but very expensive.

We just dined at the Kastel Restaurant - and had the full 8 course degustation menu (which really became more like 12 with extra treats from the kitchen). This was by far the best meal I have ever had. The food was all amazing - inventive and complex but also clean in the way flavours were presented. The service was... More

We stayed at the hotel to enjoy a castle during our trip. As part of our stay, we chose to dine at Restaurant Kastell. There are not even words that can accurately describe the meal that we enjoyed there. Thomas Kellerman is an incredible chef. An artist at the top of his craft. His menu was sensational.

We recently stayed at the castle while visting Germany from Australia. We originally intended to stay one night, on our way to Munich. However, we had such a wonderful time that we stayed a second night. The restaurant, Kastell, is particularly memorable. It was easily the best restaurant we tried in Germany.
