A very impressive hotel experience. The property itself is amongst the oldest castles in Germany and the approach to the hotel and the grounds are outstanding. Inside, the hotel is an awesome mix of both old and new. There are many wonderful old touches, combined with new flair. The surroundings are dark and quiet, the room is warm and comfortable... More

While planning a family vacation to Munich and the surrounding areas, we stayed at Schloss zu Hopferau and could not say enough good things about it. From the rooms, to the local views, to the excellent service, everything was above and beyond my expectation. We did local sight seeing and had assistance from the hotel staff that made a world...

Schloss zu Hopferau is a beautiful hotel from the outside, as well as inside. The staff are kind and happy to help in whatever way possible. The rooms are extremely clean, fitted with lovely en-suite bathrooms. However, the rooms are quite small and seems to feature lots of velvet, as well as plastic furniture. This is not a pleasing contrast,... More

We found this hotel last minute, a few hours before we arrive during our drive from Berlin, it's definitely a gem near Fussen. It was a great call to stop in Hopferau, in this Schloss. The best thing about this hotel is the preserved castle in front of the hotel rooms area, it's a point of visit itself. People were... More

We were treated upon arrival with an awful smell outside which continued inside the hotel! The room was modern and cheaply furnished with very poor lighting, the bathroom was a good size and had a bath and a separate shower.

Hopferau is a quaint Bavarian village just minutes away from the maddening tourist crowd at Fussen. Location makes it excellent for visiting all the area tourist sites, yet allows you to enjoy the quietness and serenity of a true Bavarian village. While staying at the Schloss, we were able to enjoy a traditional Bavarian music festival that we stumbled on... More
