Saw this place online and was very intrigued to stay there for 2 nights despite the fact that none of our German friends seem to have heard of this place. Emailed the place directly for the rates and decided to spurge on a tower room. We were given a room right at the top and despite it being such an old castle, we were pleasantly surprised when we entered our room. The room was very modern and it had state of the art technology! Room was spacious and bathroom (with a view) was big. There was a huge 4-poster bed and there was even a surprise (which I will not spoil the fun) when we got into bed.
Breakfast and Dinner was spent in the main dinner room from a good menu and the food was excellent! As this is a family owned place, not surprising, the husband was the chef while the wife was the one who helped to take the orders and check us in. They don't speak much english, but there are others around who made our stay extremely lovely and memorable.
In terms of activities, there isn't very much on the weekday except to have a stroll in the Tierpark ( a 5 minutes stroll downhill), which also has a small zoo (excellent for children). I believe there are plays and more activities in the weekend.
Overall, we had a lovely stay and would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a place to relax. Be warned, there is no television or wifi in the room. But the sunset view from the room is so breath-taking that one could just sit and look out with a nice glass of wine. Also, there are no lifts, so travel light if you intend to stay at the top floor.
