Schloss Wilkinghege is more of a mansion than a fairy tale style castle, although a surrounding moat gives it just the right romantic touch.
The mansion’s tastefully decorated interior with stuccoed ceilings, silk tapestries, period furniture, old paintings, and engravings suggests a late Renaissance style with enough modern updates for comfort.
Guest rooms inside the mansion are spacious and include period furnishings. If you ask for a room in the back, you’ll have a view of the moat and surrounding countryside.
The schloss’s restaurant is highly rated, and when the weather is fine, you can enjoy eating outside on the terrace.
A lovingly tended formal garden helps lend to the tranquil atmosphere.
