The vicinity of the medieval town of Oberwesel is known for its excellent Rhine wines. Steeply sloped vineyards cover the hills. Nature in the Oberes Mittelrheintal is dazzling and listed on the UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Here, high above the Rhine valley, is lies 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 castle’s history: they feature four-poster beds, alcoves, stained-glass windows, plastered ceilings and balconies with views over the meandering Rhine.
The kitchen is well stocked with seasonal and regional produce and the cellar holds the very best regional wines. After dinner why not finish the day with a good glass of wine in front of the open fire in the Kaminzimmer.
The magnificent terraced castle garden is the host’s great passion and is exclusively available for hotel guests.
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.
