We are from the US and came to Germany for the Christmas markets. This property is outside of Nuremberg but not far. We took a taxi from the train station for $25, but every day we took the city bus - the bus stop is less than a 5 minute walk from the castle, as is a bakery, cafe and place for dinner. Aldi’s is about a 10-12 minute walk in the other direction and has everything you need.
The castle itself was very safe and secure. Inside was spacious with very comfortable furniture and beds. Surprisingly, it was very warm and cozy! I thought a castle would be drafty but not at all. WiFi was strong. Ample amounts of paper products, towels, etc. Host Alfred was very helpful and kind and available during our stay.
I would definitely stay again. Nuremberg is a large, very busy city and it was nice to retreat to this quiet location at the end of the day.
We stayed at Schloss Hofstetten for a week in July 2016. The location is close to Munich, Nuremberg and Roth. This was important as we were attending the famous Challenge Roth Ironman race. Our family (of 14, 9 adults and 5 children) had such a wonderful experience we wanted to say “Thank You!” to our hosts, Familie Leuschner! They welcomed us to their renovated home (castle) and made us feel very comfortable. The Schloss was beautiful and there is so much history...all of us appreciated the details.
First of all, making contact with the owners Helga and Peter was very easy and they responded very quickly to any questions we had. Everything was seamless...the reservation, the confirmation and our stay! For those who may be concerned about making a full payment once you arrive, we had no trouble… it’s not typical for us traveling from the US to not make at least a deposit but fear not, our reservation was complete and we had no trouble upon arrival.
Once we arrived, we were given access to the castle and had 2 floors; the 2nd floor is where the majority of our rooms were including the full kitchen and dining area. The family also stays on the premises and if we needed anything they were there to help.
Finally not only were we given access to the grounds and made to feel as if it were ours, on our last day we were given a tour of the top floor and a historical overview of the Schloss!
We would like to thank the Leuchner Family for allowing us to stay at their beautiful castle!
