Nine quite different rooms are available. Each room has its own feeling and is decorated with original pieces of furniture from the 18th and 19th century. Of course we have partially integrated newer modern amenities and technology into the rooms, e.g.: electric light, wifi in the tea room, running hot water in the bathrooms and up to date mattresses. But there is no TV, phone, internet or minibar in the hotel rooms, because we strongly believe that these items would destroy the authentic atmosphere of the place. Prices range between 220 - 390.- Euros per room and night, breakfast included (two adults).

If you would like to stay in your favourite room, please contact us via phone or email, since it is only possible to select the room category when using online booking tools.

Vinzenz, Tanten and Tantalouis are recomended to those who are not afraid to meet Catarina Frescobaldi (vulgo "white lady") when they are on the way to their private bathrooms, which can be reached by a short way along the corridor due to the regulations of the Federal Monuments Authority.

Very well suited for a family or a group of friends, No.21 can be rented as an addition to No.20 with 2 extra bedrooms with 2 beds each. The bathroom is shared with No.20.

Because of the antiques that are part of each room we can accommodate guests with pets only in the Nussbaum suite. Also pets need to be announced in advance, so we can prepare the room accordingly. Due to recent events we refuse the check-in if we were not informed about pets in advance. We love pets! We have several in the castle, but this is not a regular hotel and we want a fair game for everyone.
