While planning our 6-week, self-drive tour of Europe, we decided that we wanted to stay in a real castle somewhere along the way. We were flying into Frankfurt, Germany and going to be driving along the Romantic Road. I searched the internet for lodgings along the way and I came across the 2009 article in the NYT of Schloss Sommersdorf and was impressed. We booked a 4-day stay at the Schloss with Baron Von Crailsheim and he emailed us with much information and driving directions to the castle. All was perfect. The article and website are EXACTLY as presented. Our stay was everything we envisioned, all was so authentic. We felt that we could have been living in medieval times (with modern conveniences). The moat and grounds were impressive all with beautiful views from our windows. We had breakfast with the Baron and Baroness and they were extremely hospitable. I cannot say enough about our stay at Schloss Sommersdorf, it was one of the highlights of our trip. We hope to one day return.
