This was the first stop on our journey to Switzerland and what a way to start a holiday. We had indulged ourselves by booking what is described as a very large double with balcony and while the balcony was small the room was huge. We has a sitting area with TV, a writing area and the most novel bathroom ever, behind the bookcase!
The castle is stunning with so many nooks and crannies to explore, little courtyards, balconies and terraces - just a delight.
The parking is too far away to want to carry your own bags but there is a trolley service from reception.
Dinner was inventive and excellent - horseradish ice cream with sauerkraut and pork terrine was to die for. The sesame seed bread was so good we asked to buy a loaf and were given one with no charge on our departure.
Breakfast was one of the most elegant I have ever had with tasty morsels on a silver three tier stand.
We will certainly stay here again when we are next on the Rhine - its just one of the very best hotels.

This place is really something else and no you don't need a car. We hiked to the top with our backpacks, no wheels, and it just made the destination that much more special. Take note though, the road is longer and harder to get to the top so find the trail that begins behind the church next to the weinhaus restaurant. We hiked that trail a number of times and loved it every time,was like walking through time. The castle is an amazing playground for adults and kids and there are so many places to explore and just relax. Breakfast is full of everything and the view from where you eat is worth the cost alone. Our room had a terrace with a view of the Rhine and sitting on there sipping the cognac they supplied as the sunset was simply amazing. Some great eating in the town itself, nice walks along the city walls, and make sure to drink some glasses of wine and just relax and enjoy where you because it's not everyday that peasants like us get to sleep in a castle. And if you don't feel like hiking stop by the train station in front of the main church and I'm sure they will call you a cab. Great town, Great People, Perfect Castle!!!

This is truly a special place if you are willing to pay the extra Euros. However, we tried walking with luggage from the train station as suggested by the Tourist Information booth and it was hell. When we arrived an hour later there was no apology ..... I sensed they thought it was humorous. The hotel is 2.5 kms from the boats or trains and it is straight up hill. We ended up renting a car in Oberweisel because the travel to and from the hotel is so inconvenient otherwise.
Otherwise, the service was first rate, the room was out of a fairy tale. there is lots of castle to explore and the food was excellent. It is a beautiful setting and I highly recommend this area if you like castles and hiking.

Last year in 2007 we decided to drive to Lucerne, Switzerland and this definitely was the highlight of our trip, although it was just for a night! We drove from our overnight stay at Ghent were we were a meal to the mosquitos all night - it was a just like heaven! The drive along the Rhine was absolutely fabulous and reaching the castle was not easy. We did have to take directions from friendly neighbours in the village for the road to go up to the castle. It was quite a task to drive the E class on the bridge leading to the car park. Remember to book 12 weeks ahead, or if you dither like I did you'll have to end paying for the expensive suites. BUT it was well worth staying in the Honeymoon suite an experience we'll cherish a lifetime. The whole experience starts off meeting checking staff who are dressed to the period, library, lounge, open aired restaurant, in house restaurant and not to forget the food! We were served with wine grown on the estate, the food and breakfast served the next morning was simply an experience. The beer sold only in these parts called Ziske was absolutely great! The experience was so magical that my 6yr old signed off in the Guest Book that he would one day return with his wife!

There is nothing less than "Excellent" that I can say of this castle. We were treated like royalty. The view was fantastic, the food fantastic, and the service the same. The drive across the wooden bridge to the parking lot was quite an adventure (just a little scarey but an additional thrill to our stay). Walking the walls outside our room made me feel like a knight. In cae you haven;t guessed it yet, we found our stay there Fantastic!!!
