You can’t miss the grand tower of this delightful castle hotel as you drive into town. In fact, your perfect room will be in this tower.
Guest rooms are located in two very different places: the tower and a guest house which is below the castle, reachable via a small footpath. Furnishings are in keeping with the castle’s history but with a modern touch. All rooms are spotlessly clean and feature flat screen TVs and free wi-fi. Instead of a double bed, you may find two beds pushed together. Bathrooms have showers. From the tower rooms, you can look out across vast views of the countryside.
A cozy, vaulted-ceiling dining room serves up delicious international and regional cuisine. A substantial breakfast will keep you going all day.
Your castle hosts, the Schneiders, are a lovely couple who oversee the comfort of their guests. They have brought a lot of fresh ideas to Abenberg with special packages including Harley-Davidson or Segway trips, and themed mystery or fairy tale dinners. Musical events are scheduled throughout the year.
The Franconian History Museum and a lace-making museum are located on the castle property.
