We stayed at 'Sleeping Beauty's' castle for 2 nights and had a super, relaxing stay. Our 2 young daughters were particularly bowled over by the Fairytale allure of the castle - a Romantic turreted folly overlooking magnificent scenery, fringed by glorious forest entirely reminiscent of the fairy tale this castle is thematically in thrall to. We had spectacular summer sunsets as we ate our dinners on the castle terrace (the food was wonderful - imaginative and delicious and inspired by local produce and game; plentiful venison and wild boar!) accompanied by the delightful song of swallows circling and swooping around the castle's towers. The bedrooms were rather dated but comfortable nevertheless with splendid views from their balconies. Close by is the 'tier park' - an extensive zoological garden with a number of child-oriented play zones and a 'train' (in reality a bus) to tour visitors around the huge animal enclosures. The wolves were particularly fascinating. This made for a fun-packed family day out (including our dog!) for just 19 euros! Tremendous value when you consider the exorbitant prices charged by most zoos and theme parks these days. All in all we had a delightful stay at Sababurg.
