“Scenic Family size castle in a lake.”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

This is a very beautiful 800 year old fortified manor house which resembles a castle and is located in a giant pond. The family who own it still reside in part of the place and you only get to see certain places during the tour. We speak German as well, but the tour guide lady was a little rude about not offering tours in English. ( even after we said we did not need it )
It is a fats little tour through the inside of the place and the art work is just fantastic. Plus it is only 4 or 5 euros. The exterior areas are very nice and romantic.... they are worth the visit alone... There is a nice café nearby which serves cold beer on a hot day... It does not get much better.

“Schloss Mespelbrunn Water Castle”
Reviewed August 8, 2012

Excellent place to visit. Another castle in Germany which is over 800 years old and never destroyed. I believe the same family owns the castle as in the past. entry cost was 4 Euros for an adult. Not sure about kids. I rate the castle 5 stars because everything in the castle is original to the castle. Love the Kinght's Room best. you will enjoy the richness of this location as it is deep in the Spessart forest and is quiet and green. There is also a restaurant as part of the castle although it was closed when I visited. I was staying at the hotel 1 minute down the road, which may have originally been part of the same ownership in the past. The castle is not difficult to walk to if you are in the area, unlike castles on the Rhein or Mosel.
