Wonderful schloss with great history where late vindimia was accidentally discovered in Germany. The vines are beautiful and the view is just unbelievable. Strongly recommend to visit the wine shop. Cheers!

A great place to stop for lunch and enjoy the beautiful river views overlooking rolling vineyards. Great cheese plates and sausage plated, paired with very drinkable German Whites.

The little castle is not overly beautiful but offers you some interesting architecture of the times. What is best here is the views over the vineyards of the Rheingau - however, the views from the Schwarzenberg castle are even better.

This is on of the must sees when visiting this area of Germany. The dining room opens to give a fantastic alfresco view over the vineyards of the Rheingau. The staff are very accommodating and the food is very good.

The vineyards are beautiful and the view from the restaurant is amazing. Other than that we were very disappointed. The food was average, not bad-not excellent. The service was slow, even by German standards, considering it was not crowded. The most disappointing was the wine...More
