The vicinity of the medieval town of Oberwesel is known for its excellent Rhine wines. The vineyards in this hilly area are directly above one another. The nature in the Oberes Mittelrheintal is dazzling and is on the List of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Here, high above the Rhine valley, is Burghotel & Restaurant Auf Schönburg. A lovingly restored castle which dates back to the year 966.
The rooms have been restored with an eye for detail and for the history of the castle: they include four-poster beds, alcoves, stained-glass windows, plastered ceilings and balconies with a view of the meandering Rhine.
The kitchen is filled with seasonal and regional products and the cellar contains the very best regional wines. An overnight stay at this hotel always includes a 4-course dinner and a sherry in your room. After dinner you can always finish the day off with a good glass of wine in the Kaminzimmer in front of the fireplace.
The exceptional, multi-level, castle garden is the host’s greatest passion.
The castle has various stylish and magnificent dining rooms for candle lit dinners. The two terraces have stunning views over the mighty river Rhine. Weather permitting, lunch and dinner are served here. The Burghotel & Restaurant Auf Schönburg not only offers an à-la-carte menu, you can also delight your palate with exciting specials. The rate per room is per person per night and includes a four course meal. After dinner, you can unwind in the lovely Kaminzimmer, where you sit in front of the open fire nursing a glass of good wine.
