Fairytale Living: Schlosshotel Münchhausen

As a bucket list item, I’ve always wanted to stay in a castle and what place was better than Germany to do such a thing? And what place could be better than Schlosshotel Münchhausen? L and I booked a suite for four nights as part of a package they offer and it was the best decision we made! After some small research on castle hotels around Germany, Schlosshotel Münchhausen seemed like the obvious choice if we really wanted to indulge. We arrived on a Sunday morning where we were checked in and took our bags to our room. As they prepared our room someone drove us to the other side of the property where they were serving brunch in their barn. Pretty spectacular start.

Our living room.

I’m not this well trained in resort vacations. The idea of going to a hotel just to experience the hotel is fairly new to me but this has opened my eyes as to how amazing and relaxing that can be! We can be tourists right on the property. And there is a lot to tour! Even on our last full day L and I just discovered the narrow staircase that opens up to an amazing indoor pool on the other side of the property. And we left without experiencing it all like the golf course or the spa. Just another reason to come back!

Breakfast was included in our stay so a typical morning started with us heading to the breakfast room and eating in a sunny space or having it brought back to our suite for our late start mornings.

In the afternoon we would find ourselves in the Knight’s Hall or near the Schloss Bar for coffee and tea. This is where I really got used to the whole “Kaffee und kuchen” hour of the day.

The Knight’s Hall

Dinner from the Schlosskeller, the more “rustic” one of the restaurants at the castle.

We found ourselves having drinks here at night where Lukas tries to guide me on ordering gin & tonics (personally, yuck!)

On a calm evening, we found ourselves ordering dinner to the room.

We found a deal on their website which allowed us to stay in a suite for four nights, breakfast included for 1.000 Euro. We paid for dinner and drinks throughout our stay (when the line “just add it to the room” becomes dangerous for our wallet! lol). We really had a marvelous time and would highly recommend it! They also have much more inexpensive options to stay in one of their apartment homes on the property but it was really best to stay in the castle we think – I would say go for it!

      I’m not even sure how I originally came across the idea! Maybe I dreamt of being a princess one night and needed to find a way to make that happen, LOL. I definitely recommend it though! It was an amazing experience!

    This looks gorgeous. German castles are my favorite. I got to stay in a chateau in Luxembourg last fall, and it was so much fun. I’d love to get a chance to visit this location.
