These are the most beautiful places in the country where princes, dukes and counts once built their stately homes. Some of these residences serve as castle hotels in Germany today. The range is wide: you can spend your holiday in the largest castle in Upper Lusatia just as stylishly as in Wasserburg Anholt Castle in Münsterland with its baroque garden worth seeing. Among the Romantik Hotels & Restaurants you will find some noble properties that give you the feeling of being a real lord of the castle for a while - including highly qualified staff. Because a castle hotel in Germany comes with a royal service.
This is what guests particularly appreciate about a castle hotel: Germany shows its historical side there. Explore Wartburg Castle in Eisenach, where Luther threw his inkwell at the devil and the minnesingers fought the famous Singers' War in the Middle Ages. In nearby Weimar, the former equestrian estate Dorotheenhof provides the ideal base for exploring the city in the footsteps of Goethe and Schiller. Since the Middle Ages, Petershagen Castle has watched over the community of the same name on the Weser, first as a fortified castle and later converted into a palace. The history of Gaussig Castle is also interesting. The house, where Saxon King Augustus the Strong was often a guest, was converted into a hotel by a descendant of a previous owner after it had served as a rest home in GDR times. In Kelkheim near Frankfurt am Main, the US forces were billeted at the Rettershof at the same time. The little castle, built in the British Tudor style, is now a chic hotel.
One of the most beautiful features of castle hotels in Germany is that they not only radiate elegance and nobility from the outside. Rooms and restaurants are also often furnished with genuine antiques or at least in the appropriate style, so that the feeling of being a prince runs through the entire stay. The Hotel Schloss Rheinfels shows that humour is not neglected either. There, the fitness room is called "The Torture Chamber". The best way to book a castle hotel in Germany is right here!
