Kamp-Bornhofen is on the east side of the historical Rhine River, south of Koblenz and across the river from Boppard.
From the train station or the cruise boat landing stage, it’s about a 5-minute walk to Hotel Garni Café Nickenig Rheinischer Hof, and from there a transfer service will take you to the castle hotel.
Nearby: Rhine boat trips
Perched high above the Rhine River, this traditional castle hotel exudes loads of medieval character. Family run, you’ll find a personal and friendly touch from the guest rooms to the cozy restaurant.
Everywhere you look something will remind you of the castle’s origins. It can be a suit of armor, some romantic castle ruins to explore, or the arched windows that give an eagle’s eye view of the Rhine boat traffic.
A small, low-ceilinged spiral staircase leads up to a few of the rooms. Be sure to watch your head! Guest rooms are charmingly and individually decorated. They can be furnished with a canopied bed, open fireplace, beamed ceilings, stone walls, light sconces, and Oriental carpets.
The guest room on the top floor has a four-poster bed, as well as a spectacular view of the Rhine and nearby Castle Sterrenberg. A tower room holds two window seats in an alcove—also with river views.
Bathrooms are equipped with showers.
The castle restaurant serves classic and well-prepared German cuisine. If the weather is good, you can enjoy a sunset dinner with a glass of local wine in the courtyard.
And of course, what’s a castle without a resident ghost? The Baroness of Liebenstein comes out at night on the twisting staircase to haunt the guests!
Lots of medieval castle atmosphere
