If you have ever wanted to stay in a castle then Schlosshotel Kronberg is the place to go! You read that right, this hotel is really a castle! It’s one of the nicest accommodations I have ever stayed in, and I felt like a Princess the entire time. Keep reading for my full review of Schlosshotel Kronberg.
Built in 1889 by Empress Frederick and the Queen of Prussia, this castle has a long history. It was used by the royal family up until WWI. During WWI it was occupied by the French and then during WWII it was used as an officer’s club. The castle suffered disrepair and most of the art was lost, although some was returned in 2015. The hotel went through major renovations in 1967 when the chef set fire to the place for what he felt was wrong treatment. It was repaired back to its original state as much as possible and reopened. It now stands as a five-star hotel with impeccable service and style.
The hotel is a 30-minute drive outside of Frankfurt, Germany. It sits on almost 300 acres, 250 of which have been converted to a golf course. Although close to big city you feel so secluded and it’s the perfect getaway, especially for couples.
There are 61 rooms and suites in the hotel. They all are individually designed, and the layout is as close to the original rooms as possible. Keeping the integrity of the original castle floorplan was top priority during the renovation.
They have an amazing restaurant onsite! It’s a whole experience within itself. You can do up to six courses at lunch and dinner. I 1000% recommend that you treat yourself to the full six courses. If you want to know more read my full experience here.
Not only do they have fantastic lunch and dinner service, but their breakfast is just as scrumptious. They do a full brunch with my personal favorite – a honeycomb wall! It was so amazing; I really recommend doing the brunch as well!
One of the largest rooms to stay in is the Grand Suite. It is over two floors and has a separate living and sleeping area plus a kitchenette. With a huge bathroom and shower this is perfect for a longer stay. If you want some history staying in the Royal Suite is your best option. It was the room that the “last German Emperor, Frederick II” stayed in! It will transport you back to a different time with its original desk, leather furniture and stately living room.
If you are looking for something more conventional, they have three classes that are not suites. You can choose from a superior, deluxe, and grand park view.
There is so much to do on site! You can play golf on the 18-hole course or go to the spa for a relaxing day. The grounds are huge, and you can spend so much time just walking around and taking it all in.
I absolutely loved my stay and will 100% be going back. It was the perfect mixture of luxury and uniqueness. I mean how many times do you stay in a castle! If you are in Frankfurt this is a great spot to spend a weekend or few days unwinding and relaxing.
