We visited here whilst on a River Cruise. It was very very cold so the odd brazier in the Christmas Market was most welcome. Having said that, there were lots of people and finding somewhere to sit was difficult. The market is quite small and...More

I was here for the Thurn & Taxis private Christmas market on a cruise this past December. Since it was FRIGID outside I decided to spend part of my 2 hour visit to T&T doing the palace tour (aka heated, indoor). It was FASCINATING! I...More

I haven’t seen anything that gorgeous in a while! The castle is so beautiful and a perfect background for their Christmas market. All the lights in the trees and huts, the champagne pavilion, the smell of sweet almonds, gingerbread and great sausages is so intoxicating!...More

We had the luxury of having a private tour (just the 9 of us in our party). The palace used to be a monastery from the Middle Ages until it was rebuilt into a palace in the 1800s. You tour the dining room, salons, and...More

There is an admission price but it’s worthy. The setting is beautiful, and the palace makes an remarkable backdrop to the lights, trees and stalls. You’ll see some traditional musicians, and other displays (some cute live animals). The food is varied, many options, and the...More

Just got back from visiting the castle and the Christmas Market. It was our 11th market this season and definitely the best. We also had a tour of the castle which was very interesting since the family still lives there.
