From the name itself, this was a real castle that was converted as a hotel. Rooms are clean and equipped with heaters, useful as it could get really chilly in Germany. This is a good place to check-in if you want to get out of...More

This is a tricky one to rate. Another reviewer has referred to the difficulties they encountered as a sole traveller wanting a guided tour. I had the same experience at Homburg but the staff there were more amenable to a solution. The train arrives and...More

Only the Linde miniforest remains now in the original baroque, but the gardens are carefully maintained, and very beautiful.

Beautiful caste garden with many platforms A very tranquil place with beautifully plantations. It is worth wile to visit the gardens that are some hundred years old. You always find a shady place there.

I think I put everything in the review title. We had German friends with us so got some translations. The guide, as others already noted, is not inclined to notice foreigners. There is no literature in English at all, not even leaflets. The palace itself...More
