Castle Hotel Auf Schönburg in Oberwesel am Rhein, Germany


Oberwesel am Rhein
Castle Hotel Auf Schönburg

Germany is known for its spectacular castles, so we had to make some tough decisions. In the end, it came down to authenticity, charm and location. With just 24 individually furnished guest rooms, this castle features a prison tower and panoramic river terraces. It sits above the medieval town of Oberwesel in the Rhine Valley, and the first mention of it dates back to 911. Major restorations began in 1914, and the best rooms feature arched windows, timber paneling, balconies and Rhine River views. All stays come with a welcome sherry, generous breakfast and four-course dinner in the elegant dining room; regional specialties include fillet of venison with morel cream and woodland mushroom soup.
