                                Looks like a fairy tale …
 … but it’s real.                                      

Towering on the crest of a basalt rock, Castle Braunfels greets visitors from afar with its castellated silhouette. This very much alive cultural monument has been in the hands of noble lineage for 800 years. Rich in unique artefacts, the castle is still inhabited by the family today. The former stronghold was transformed throughout the centuries and continuously altered and extended. The eventful evolution from stronghold to castle, as well as the history of the princely family and the family ties into the whole of Europe and America, come alive in our guided tours.

You can also visit our separate, beautiful » Princely Family Museum – without a guide – all day long (until dusk). Weapons, uniforms, silver, china, coins and many other interesting items belonging to the family can be seen here.

A broad program of cultural events takes place in the castle yard all year round, and in summer in particular there are wonderful open-air opera concerts. The wide-ranging events appeal to visitors of all ages and interests and, in the welcoming tradition of our Christian family, are open to our guests from all over the world.

So how about a fairytale excursion?
