Overview

Wellcome to Braunfels Castle! It looks a bit like in a fairy tale, but it is real. Located on the very top of a rock it wellcomes its guests from far. Since centuries its owned by the family, which is still living there. Braunfels is a charming little place with the huge castle right in the middle of it. Braunfels Castle itself offers an attractive variety of sightseeing possibilities, which however are a bit limited in wintertime (Nov.- March). Enjoy your stay in Braunfels!

The castle is an awesome way to spend a Sunday! The guided tour takes 50 minutes and for the English guide you need to announce first. Only the paintings inside make the whole tour worth it. Inside the castle might be a little cold (2-3...More

When the Solms Dynasty moved from Greifenstein to Braunfels my ancestors did too. Brauinfels visits are a must. Approach to the castle is over a charming open area framed by timbered housing. The castle has been restored around the 1850s with additions in the Neo-Romanesque...More

We paid two euro's for entering the museum, it was well worth it with some interesting artifacts that I have not yet seen elsewhere. But unfortunately it was in really bad shape, probably not so good for the older artifacts. Walking around the castle itself...More

A beautiful 19th century gothic castle with ties to Texas! We did not take the inside tour as we didn't plan this part of the trip. We did walk around the grounds and park behind it and the village at the foot of it. Impressed...More

First visit the castle--take a master tour. Then visit other areas and make sure to eat in the market area, just down hill from the castle.
