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!
We are a family of 5 and we were comfortable and impressed with the nicely updated and appointed kitchen and bathroom of this clean and tidy holiday apartment. Everything that you would need in a kitchen is in place to include a dishwasher! Gorgeous custom cabinets, granite counter tops, and high end stainless steel appliances allows you to cook to your heart's desire, if you so choose. Huge bathroom with extra large soaking tub and open shower area. The walls of the apartment and the floor of the bathroom are all heated which made for a very cozy apartment during the cold winter days. There is a fireplace too! The custom made beds were comfortable and big fluffy comforters allowed us all to get a good night's sleep. Antique furniture complete the rooms, all beautiful and functional.
The Leuschner's and their son were very gracious hosts and most helpful with our day trips giving us great suggestions of what to do and see. We were given a full tour of the castle and learned of it's history. They have put their hearts and a lot of hard work into their historic castle and it was much appreciated!
We loved the location of the castle, enjoyed the beautiful Bavarian countryside and the surrounding towns and villages.
This was a memorable Christmas trip for us and was made special by the Leuschner's. For that, we are very grateful!
