Oberwesel, Germany: Princess for a Night

Hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful Fall weather! So today I’m wrapping up the second half of my Germany trip, which includes Berlin and an overnight stay in a castle.

Like I said in my last post, after my day trip to Cologne I met back up with my mom in Oberwesel. It’s a small town along the Rhine, it’s much smaller than Heidelberg and has more of a medieval feel to it. We stayed at Burghotel auf Schรถnburg, it’s top rated on TripAdvisor for a reason.

For those of you that don’t know me, I’m slightly obsessed with Cinderella, I felt like a princess staying here. I was absolutely giddy the entire stay.

We got there late at night and were starving, luckily dinner was included. This isn’t your typical hotel dinner though, it was a FIVE course meal. Ranging from duck appetizers, pasta, soup, mushroom roast beef, strawberry tart with ice cream and ending with tea or coffee. I had never had a fancier meal in my life. From dinner we headed to our room for the night.

When we woke up in the morning there was a thick layer of fog outside the window, which added an eery feel to the castle.

While waiting for the fog to burn off, we went to breakfast, which had just about anything you could want. Once properly fueled we went and explored the gardens. Holy cow, they were so incredibly beautiful! There were views over the Rhine, a life size chess board, gazebos, little cottages, benches and fountains everywhere. I could have spent hours in the gardens, just walking and reading.

After breakfast that morning, I had joked with my mom that I would be a fat princess but after seeing the gardens I think I had some hope of walking off at least some of the food ๐Ÿ˜‚.

Sorry if that was picture overload, it was just so beautiful and the pictures don’t do it justice. Overall, I wish I had had some more time at the castle to explore and relax but we had to get back to Frankfort for our flight. Next and final stop: Berlin!

 

xoxo, the blonde
