“It is something not quite expected!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013

I have often gone through this town. But my schedule permitted this brief visit. What a nice gem. The schloss is being renovated. Yet many of the site itself is finished. There is a bit of a confusing lobby to check in. Once there all is well. The castle brings one back 400 years, Such clean and medieval edges dominate the views.
The rooms are old and new. Pick your choice. The hotel is for sleeping and eating. Enjoy walking around the lake and check out the village. Things move slower here as they should. A perfect site for a wedding or private event.
The rooms were comfortable and nice. The rooms are very clean. Stay here if you can and the visit will be worth it.

This castle is currently being restored and converted, so the rooms currently available are of the 'conference accommodation' type, clean and simple, but with such an atmospheric and beautiful surrounding. A medieval fortress as a basis, in a charming artesan village - glassware, ceramic studios etc. - with a mind-blowingly lovely church linked by a gallery to the castle, it's a journey back in time. One wing also houses the music school of Bayreuth University, so faint strains of music are ever-present.

We were very comfortable, our room overlooking the central courtyard with its fountain, and were most impressed by the breakfast buffet - including smoked salmon and trout, fruits and many different types of bread - and champagne to go with the juices. There is a fine-dining restaurant in construction, though this was no problem for us as there are traditional eateries a few minutes' walk away around the village square - huge delicious portions and very reasonably priced.

We want to come back and explore more! The village is handy for Bayreuth and visiting the Czech Republic's historic cetres such as Calsbad (Karlovy Vary) and Pilsen, in delightful countryside - stroll round the castle's lake: romantic on a summer evening!

Room Tip: Currently all rooms are so similar that they are all good!
