This Bavarian castle boasts everything a castle lover could desire: moat, turrets, towers, spiral staircases, and a stone bridge.
Schloss Sommersdorf is not your typical German castle hotel. In fact, it’s not really a hotel but a private home that offers a few regular guest rooms and six self-catering apartments.
Everything you need to call your castle home is provided, and a grocery store is only five minutes away. If you don’t wish to cook, a number of restaurants are in the neighborhood.
