From the first moment you lay eyes on Trendelburg Castle, you can’t help but notice all the proper ingredients for a real castle are there: ancient walls, towers, and a drawbridge.
Enormous creativity in converting a wonderful piece of architecture to modern times are evident. A former chapel has been converted into a dining room, and one guest room out in the tower has its bathroom accessible through a wardrobe.
Throughout the castle you’ll find lots of open-beamed ceilings, woodwork, an occasional suit of armor, and antique pieces adorning the white-washed walls.
Taking advantage of its location along the “Fairy Tale Road,” Trendelburg maintains an association with the Grimm Brothers. For fun, the honeymoon tower across from the main building has been dubbed “Rapunzel’s Tower.”
