The Schumachers were wonderful hosts and the hotel is magnificent. It was so enjoyable to stay here at "Rapunzels Tower." It is gorgeous to see and our room was very nice. Our bed was comfortable. SInce there is no AC, you have to worry about the insects coming inside if you open the windows. Still overall, this is not a... More

We loved, loved this beautiful castle hotel. We are a family of four traveling along the Grimm fairy tale route and we booked 2 nights in two rooms at this castle hotel. The comfort double rooms are nicer than the standard rooms. The deco is super, each room is beautiful and exquisitely decorated. The castle with the Rapunzel tower is... More

We had such a wonderful stay in Hotel Burg otherwise known as Rapunzel's castle! We have 3 boys and they loved staying there as much as we did. There is so much to talk about...the amazing views from the dining area, the cute little town it was in, the castle grounds, the authentic decor, comfortable beds, wonderful staff, great food...

This delightful castle was Grimm brothers other story princess Rapunzel's castle. There is a high tower, where doorway was only opened 1911. That is what suggests that she was locked in this 40 m high tower. Service was good here as well, but the tower room got really hot as there is poor ventilation and no a/c. There was also... More

Rapunzel's castle and its staff are wonderful. Everything we wanted and needed was provided with a friendly smile, and we were treated warmly and always with kindness. The atmosphere is historic and the castle and its grounds are very well preserved. Children are treated very well and there is a cute alcove with a castle playset. The dining room has... More

Historic old Rapunzel Castle with all modern comforts. 5 stars all around! You will feel welcome from the start. Great food, fabulous romantic rooms and child friendly. As a hotel guest you can visit the tower for free as often as you wish.

We stayed at Sababurg, the Sleeping Beauty Castle, just 15 minutes away, so our visit to Trendelburg was to see the tower. You will immediately see the contrast in hotel styles - Trendelburg seems to have kept the traditional look, whereas Sababurg, while traditional, modernized it just a bit more. Anyway, the tour of the tower was fun - just... More

We wanted to stay in a castle, but most are outrageously expensive and much of the “feel” of a castle removed in the name of comfort and “luxury”. I was a bit leery of this one due to its price in comparison with others we looked at. Our doubts were quelled as soon as we arrived. This place is MAGNIFICANT!... More

In a old castle this hotel really carry to a fairytale. Different of other “castle hotels” Burg keeps the original atmosphere of a medieval castle, but with both feet on comfort. This is the castle that inspired the Rapunzel fairytale and is one of the most wonderful hotel from Germany. The staff was absolutely lovely and made me feel very... More
