This castle is as wonderful inside as it is outside. There are only guided tours inside but these are quite regular irrespective of the group size. My guide did not speak English but she did her best to explain everything and we muddled through with...More

We stopped in at Schloss Buerresheim after a visit to Burg Eltz, it’s only a 30 minute drive away. This castle is very much unspoiled by the flocks of tourists, or the 19th century penchant for rebuilding and redecorating older castles (as is the case...More

We recently visited this castle on the only rainy day of our holiday. The entry is few euro's and even though the guided tour is conducted in German, you can keep up to speed with the small well translated leaflet. I was fortunate that my...More

My car's navigation system found this castle a few kilometers outside of Mayen and we were pleased to find sufficient free parking within a short distance of the entrance. The walk up to the inner courtyard and the ticket counter was rather tortuous over green,...More

We visited early on a late November morning. A cold ice fog blowing through the trees and onto the ramparts were truly memorable. The tour was in German but the guide explained slowly to my friend -- who speaks a bit of German. One of...More

This castle is quite impressive - it's one of the few that was never destroyed, and you can tell. Only two never-destroyed castles of this kind exist, and the other one is Burg Eltz, which for some reason is a lot more famous (okay, Eltz...More

We visited the castle with our 4-year-old son, who is a great castle fan and it did not disappoint him. Massive walls, high Towers and screechy old doors: paradise for a pre-schooler. The gardens were closed and could not be visited. If you have a...More
