This is a very pretty castle in a hilltop forest. There is a small museum and they raise trout in ponds. There are hundreds of years of history here. It's worth taking a look if you are in the area, but don't go out of...More

The area is beautiful and we enjoyed the best apple cake at the Hotel Schloss Mespelbrunn. We visited on Friday, May 26th and it was closed. It was a lovely setting.

The castle is interesting but don't bother if you don't speak very good german! The castle is also kind of in the middle of nowhere, we struggled to find anywhere to get a drink / snack.

This easily accessible palace is a classic structure, and worth seeing anytime or any day... fall and winter are particularly nice, with fewer visitors. Take the tour, its interesting and offered in many languages.

I had the pleasure to visit this castle on a cold foggy day, which only added to the atmospheric nature of the place. the building is nice and photogenic but I wouldn't recommend spending more than an hour there.

This is a very picturesque castle in a valley about 30 minutes outside Frankfurt, Germany. This castle is very unique compared to many others in its construction with water on one side and in a valley rather than on a hill. It's only $5 Euro...More

The Schloss looks quite beautiful, but if your German isn't good enough to keep up with a native speaker, there's really not much here. The guide spoke solely in German, the only signs written in any other language were an occasional 'Don't Touch', and no...More

I have visited this castle several times. It is a charming, under appreciated gem. For a small entry fee, you can have a wonderful tour of the interior of this castle. It does have a very nice history and it is not as crowded as...More
