“Romance above the Neckar Valley”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2012

I had booked 1 night at this 12th century castle as a wedding anniversary treat for my husband and I. There were quite a few castles to stay in around this region, and we were a little unsure of what to expect. WOW! We were not disappointed. The steep road up to this castle, makes the arrival all the more exciting. High above the vineyards(owned by the castle/family and wine can be bought from their shop), and with a superb with of the Neckar valley below. Check in was efficient and we were shown to our double room with an amazing view of the Neckar river. We had booked the 'castle arrangement' which included breakfast and a superb 4 course candle-light evening meal. The present owner, Marcus Freiherr von Gemmingen-Hornberg greeted each and every guest personally which was a nice touch and the wait staff were very well trained and pleasant. To dine surrounded by oil paintings and suits of armour, centuries old was something else, and very memorable. There is a terrace to enjoy a glass of wine with a terrificv view and also a self guided tour of the ruins of the castle.

We saw this Schloss from the road and were pleasantly surprised to find a comfortable and unusual hotel/restaurant. We stayed in a building which was across from the restaurant and all these rooms had a balcony. The building was carpeted and overlooked the wooded forest and so was quiet. The bed was comfortable and the room was furnished tastefully, as was the en-suite, although for a 4 * hotel, I was a llittle surprised that there was no fridge, wi-fi, safe or little extras in the bathroom. We ate on the terrace overlooking the vineyard, the River Neckar and the industrial estate. It was an enjoyable experience but not quite a 4* one.

It was an excellent hotel. The room was comfortable and clean, and has a lovely balcony with a nice view of a lush forest. An exploration in the castle ruin was an unmissable experience: there were unknown flowers blooming from the crevices in the beautifully sculpted walls; and the view on top of the castle was spectacular, especially during dusk, when the Neckar valley was embraced by the crepuscular rays.
The breakfast was superb and the staff were quite helpful, too.

This hotel was excellent - the castle ruins were fun to explore and the view overlooking the Neckar river was superb. The rooms are timbered and our balcony overlooked the lush wooded surroundings. It was an amazing place.

We stayed at Castle Hornberg on a recent holiday to Germany. Our four year old son wanted to spend the night in a castle so we did some internet research to find a castle hotel that was on our vacation route. You have to drive up a very steep hill and through an archway into the courtyard to arrive at the castle, this was impressive. In the reception area there is a "Brave Knight" so our son was immediately amused by this. We had arranged a room looking over the Neckar which was in the tower. There were many stairs but it was easy to navigate. Our room had a separate single bed built into the wall which our son really thought was neat. The room was very comfortable, although too warm. No air conditioning (of course, this is Europe) but there was no ceiling fan either. This was really the only downfall to our stay. The view over the Neckar was impressive. We toured the ruins of the castle built in the 11th century and then enjoyed an impressive and very expensive meal out in the courtyard under the chestnut tree. The service in the restaurant was really not very good, I think they could have been more attentive. The breakfast was fit for a royal family. Overall our son had his castle experience and loved every minute of it. My husband, who's German, knew the story of Gotz von Berlichingen, so he enjoyed the history of the establishment.

We fell upon this place one day while driving toward Bavaria. It was getting late and time to find a place for the night. Using an old guide book, we drove up to the castle and were happy to get a junior suite for me, my husband and teenage son. We thought it was kinda neat staying at a castle. My husband and I stepped down a few steps into our large room and slept in a built-in canopy bed, made of dark carved wood; and my son had a separate room with TV and two twin beds. We had cocktails on the outdoor patio with the most incredible view of the river and villages below. That night we had dinner in the restaurant. The meal was delicious, and the staff couldn't have tried any harder to please us. (The service was a little pretentious for a country setting, but they were very charming.) The venison with roasted peaches in a veal reduction was unbelievably good and the veal with wild mushrooms in a rich wine sauce was first class. The first courses were great; however, I remember the dessert not being all that wonderful. This was an expensive night, but we thought it was also a very special night worth remembering.
