Schloss Schkopau is a nicely restored Renaissance castle hotel, well located (if you have a car), and in easy driving distance of Halle and Leipzig.
Surrounded on three sides by parkland, trails that pass by the hotel are ideal for early morning walks or jogs.
Despite the modern furnishings, the hotel still retains touches of its original character. Guest rooms are clean, large, and comfortable, with views of the park or castle courtyard. Some rooms have immense bathrooms.
The hotel restaurant serves excellent candlelight dinners beneath a white barrel-vaulted ceiling. On the menu is a wide selection of entrées, featuring regional and international cuisine, as well as local wines. Dinners for groups are available in private rooms. In the bar, after dinner drinks may be enjoyed in front of a warm fireplace. During good weather, the hotel opens up the outside terrace.
