Grand, magnificent, and every inch a palace, Schloss Kronberg gives a fascinating glimpse into the world of 19th- and 20th-century monarchy.
Public rooms filled with books, paintings, tapestries, and porcelains are just as the Empress Victoria planned her home. Notice the priceless Gobelin tapestry at the top of the stairs, the wood-ceilinged hall, and the fine art of Turner and Reynolds on the walls. Private function rooms are exquisite.
Guest rooms are furnished with antiques and some reproductions, paintings, and Oriental carpets; some have fireplaces. For the ultimate splurge, the Royal Suite is where Empress Victoria slept herself.
Dinner is an elegant affair in a beautiful room reflective of the palace. In the afternoons, English tea is served.
Service throughout is first rate.
Palace concerts, readings, and cocktail classes
