Schloss Auel is a very charming hotel located north of Lohmar. I've stayed there 205 years after Napoleon and recommend it whether you come to inspect you army as he did or have other business in the area. If you come by train and feel slightly adventurous take the walk from Honrath which gives you a feeling for the surroundings.

The Schloss itself is a 5 star beautiful old castle, located in the Woods. The room was romantic, the settings were beautiful and i must say that the food was amazing. Everything from breakfast, dinner, drinks, etc are still in my mind. We went for a wedding, and the only reason i am giving it a 4 star rating, is...

This is a hotel you will either love or hate. Being a traditional Schloss, it's decor is in keeping with the age of the building and is packed full of character, with each room having a different theme and packed full of antiques. The bedrooms are very comfy and clean and bathrooms spotless. Breakfast is a good selection of hot...

We stayed at this lovely hotel only for one night as a stop over on the trip to Southern Germany. The courtyard of the hotel is quite impressive, looking more like a French chateau rather than a German schloss. We had an excellent room on the first floor with views over the courtyard in one direction and the golf course...

This place has so much history, it should be packed with overseas visitors. Napoleon Bonaparte stayed here, as did one of Russia's Tsars, and the decoration pays homage to times gone by with framed old maps and etchings on the walls. The rooms, though, are completely up to modern standards; ours had been decorated with old photos of Persian empress...

Found this hotel on Expedia.com and it was a great deal. Close enough to Cologne by car yet it sits out in the country and there is a good back road to get there.

The Schloss Auel hotel is something quite different. It is located outside a small town near Cologne, in a beautiful scenery, about half an our drive from the city by car. In all aspects, it's got an ancient feel, but with modern amenities. It is quiet and stylish and seems the perfect location for weddings. A chapel is part of...
