This authentic castle is absolutely lovely. The view from my window looked over the castle moat and to beautiful Franconian countryside. It is an easy day trip to Nuremberg, Rothenberg, Dinkelbuhl and other charming sites. The baron and baroness live on premises could not have been more gracious. The baron had great sightseeing suggestions, and the baroness prepared wonderful breakfast....

We had the pleasure of staying in the Jeanette Apartment in the Manor house at this magnificent castle for a week. When we arrived we were warmly welcomed by Dr. Manfred Baron v Crailsheim and made to feel extremely welcome. We were given extensive information about the area and sightseeing suggestions. We were also treated to a tour of the...

This was myself and my boyfriends first European trip and we are so grateful we chose to stay at Schloss Sommersdorf. The castle and grounds are gorgeous and make you feel like you are living in a fairytale. We stayed on the 2nd floor Carola Apartment and it was incredible! The apartment was very spacious and comfortable and we felt...

Come and stay with the Baron von Crailsheim at the Castle Sommersdorf in Bavaria. You will be enchanted by the wonderful views of this 800 year old castle. The guest rooms are a great place to have as your base of operation when driving around the German countryside. All the rooms are modern, comfortable and very clean. If you are...

We visited Schloss Sommersdorf in 2006, and it had remained our favorite vacation of all our travels; so we made a return trip for a week in mid-September. The Baron and Baroness are such gracious hosts that we felt almost like we were visiting old friends. We just love the Franconian countryside and all the quaint medieval walled villages nearby....

We stayed 3 nights in two apartments (Julie and Carola) at Schloss Sommersdorf and we found the castle to be incredibly interesting and majestic. Our weather was unfortunately rainy and cold and we had difficulty finding the castle, but we were eventually flagged down by the owner after we had called to ask for more specific directions. The villages are...

My husband and I stayed at the Castle at Sommersdorf and had a great time. We stayed on the Carola apartment, on the old castle. It is a one bedroom apartment but really spacious and comfortable. It had a little Kitchen and a Big Living room. The amazing thing about this castle are the owners, Dr. Manfred v. Crailsheim, his...

While planning our 6-week, self-drive tour of Europe, we decided that we wanted to stay in a real castle somewhere along the way. We were flying into Frankfurt, Germany and going to be driving along the Romantic Road. I searched the internet for lodgings along the way and I came across the 2009 article in the NYT of Schloss Sommersdorf...

Schloss Sommersdorf fits the image of a medieval castle. It has a moat, a keep, a crypt - even a real baron! Baron von Crailsheim was a very gracious host and gave us a fascinating tour of the castle. The castle is in a lovely rural area with lots of wildlife - we saw a stork! - but is only...

Just back from a wonderful week in Schloss Sommersdorf, a real 800 yr-old castle. It has been brought into modern times with electricity and water and microwave ovens but the bones are truly old (including the mummies in the cellar). More like a B&B than a hotel but you're on your own for most meals. We had breakfast with the...

“All the rooms are nice. You can either stay in the castle or on the grounds. Just ask the Baron.”

“Our apartment in the main part of the castle had some wifi access if you sat near the front door. If wifi is important to you, ask Manfred which apartments have the best signal.”
