Spent the night in a 13th century castle
Posted Oct 18, 2016
What a fun experience, to stay in the beautiful Burg Colmberg! The castle's rooms have been retrofitted for modern comfort, while retaining the ambiance of the castle. Staff was lovely and accommodating. We wandered the castle & grounds freely, enjoying a close-up look at history. The castle was built in the 13th century overlooking a wide swath of valley below. The night we stayed, it was quite cold outside, but the castle was cozy with a roaring fire in the fireplace in the main hall. The restaurant was very nice, food excellent, and we saw locals who drove up the mountain to dine there. In the morning there was a typical German breakfast spread which more than met our expectations. It was included in the very reasonable price of the room. Overall it was an outstanding experience and was one of our trip highlights.
