Unique fortified house surrounded by water with an interesting history. The town itself is charming, the hotel in front looked charming as well. Parking will cost you 2 euros. It is a short 200 meter walk up to the grounds of the house. You can’t...More

The castle was already closed when we arrived but we walked in the castle area and took some pictures. There is a chapel on the hill, a Neo-Romanesque sepulchre chapel. From the chapel area you have a beautiful view of Mespelbrunn
