Excellent and peculiar castle. Only Versailles comes to mind as a rough analogy. Besides the castle, the complex includes church, orangery and park. The courtyard has chairs, there are concerts under the open sky. There is a restaurant and hotel - in fact, quite inexpensive....More

Beautiful caste garden with many platforms A very tranquil place with beautifully plantations. It is worth wile to visit the gardens that are some hundred years old. You always find a shady place there.

I think I put everything in the review title. We had German friends with us so got some translations. The guide, as others already noted, is not inclined to notice foreigners. There is no literature in English at all, not even leaflets. The palace itself...More

Weilburg Castle is beautiful and fascinating inside and out. However, to see the insides, we had to take a tour (for a few euros) which was entirely in German. The xenophobic guide was rather snooty and not inclined to indulge us with the slightest effort...More
