Castle Hotel Auf Schoenburg is a charming hotel within a 10th century castle on the Rhine Gorge Unesco World Heritage site in the medieval town of Oberwesel. As you drive up the hill and cross the drawbridge, take in gorgeous views of the castle turrets and ramparts, indicative of a history steeped in war and trade. Check into exclusive rooms, individually decorated with antique furnishings and artwork, and appointed with all modern amenities except air conditioning. Sip your welcome sherry and enjoy views of the courtyard, or the beautiful Rhine river and the lush green countryside from your window seat or balcony. Tuck in to a buffet breakfast served on the terrace with stunning views before you set out to explore the winding paths of the secret garden following a hand-drawn map. Discover hidden nooks and crannies, delightful flower beds, a giant chess board, old swings, cottages, secret hideaways, sculptural installations, and a tower museum. Lounge with a book at the treehouse library outdoors, or come back indoors to curl up in the library with a fireplace. Wind down with a four-course international gourmet dinner made from locally sourced ingredients at the vaulted halls of the festive Knight’s Hall dining room.
