The delicious food can be enjoyed inside the restaurant in a beautiful rustic setting or outside on the terrace. Guests are advised to make reservations because the restaurant is usually packed. Big portions, reasonable prices, good service, unique ambiance. If you are in the area, go there. It will be an experience you won’t forget. Try the “knochen” (spare ribs).... More

The Badenburg castle is located on the Lahn River in an out of the way location which is mostly known to locals. The main attraction is the restaurant which operates in the castle and is only open for dinner. We arrived early and were the first people in line.

Very awesome place to visit,its more a Castle than a Restaurant.beside the food that tastes really good and looks Medieval(i used to play towal war).there is a lot to see.Knights,the medival decoration,the Building is very very beautiful. The road to Badenburg is Medival too,it is very bumpy,maybe the only negative thing i could say.

I especially think this restaurant is unique, particularly because of my North American heritage...we just don't have the history like this restaurant offers. In my imagination, I can visualise having a feast in a dimly lit castle just like this and being served a feast and most dishes here seem like a feast. The food is tasty and plentiful but... More

You will remember eating here. It has great ambience, not very sophisticated, but memorable in a nice way. Try the spare ribs and you'll be a happy traveller for days..
