Stumbled on to this gem by accident - but what a great find! This beautiful castle had gorgeous gardens and interesting features I'd never seen before in a castle. The entry fee was minimal and it was not overrun by tourists. We just loved it!

One of my favourite castles. Still largely occupied but visitors are able to explore a large part of the castle. Beautiful with flowers everywhere: wonderful garden atmosphere. Good views down over the Mosel, especially from the top of the tower (steep, narrow ladders to climb...More

This is a very large castle on the Mosel. Access is easy as you can drive all the way to the top. After crossing the drawbridge you enter a castle that is well maintained and offers access to many different rooms of the castle. There...More
