Although Leonstain is a modern resort, many medieval castle touches remain: vaulted ceilings, half-timbered walls, a charming courtyard, and decorative wrought-iron pieces scattered about.
The hotel is not located directly on the lake, but a footpath will take you to a private beach and dock where you can take a canoe out to explore the area.
Rooms are varied in size and decor; the duplex suites have sitting rooms with bedrooms tucked under the ceiling eaves; framed musical scores decorate the antique-filled Brahms Suite.
During the summer months you can enjoy a candlelit dinner served outside in the lovely Renaissance-style courtyard.
