Along the Romantic Road, the Hohenlohe Plain is an area of sleepy postcard villages and German Renaissance castles such as Burg Götzenburg.
There are lots of medieval touches around the castle such as weaponry on the wall, suits of armor, and a massive piece of antique furniture here and there.
Each spacious guest room is unique. With rooms in the main castle, you might find a four-poster canopy bed or a beamed ceiling. Guest rooms located in the outer bailey are bright, cozy, and furnished in a more traditional German country style. All have ensuite baths.
Dinner is heavy on the meat, which comes in generous portions.
