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.

This was the highlight of our trip to Germany. This is the best meal I ever had. Staff is wonderful and the castle is amazing. Next visit I will carve out time for another visit.

The title of this review sums it up: I have never had such an incredibly marvelous dining experience. Never. I have visited many signature & gourmet restaurants over the past few decades, this is absolutely at the top of my list. The Gourmetrestaurant Kastell - showplace for Michelin two-star chef Thomas Kellerman - is located in the castle (Burg Wernberg)... More

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. The food, the presentation and the service were... More

We visited Burg Wernberg in May 2011 with 2 friends whilst we were visiting Europe from Hong Kong and the US. During our trip we ate at a number of highly rated restaurants in Europe. However, the Kastell was the best of them. The food was exceptional and the presentation just as good. We each ordered the special menu and... More
