  • It is spectacular. When were we had a kind of Medieval fair. We had a very well. We keep good memories of your visit.

  • At the Knight games, we have found that this event is not necessarily suitable for very young children in June. The walk from the car park to the Castle and the subsequent standing at the cash register was already exhausting for our three-year grandson. Ticket prices (incl. seat) are violent. We felt not like meals and beverages in the Castle, including the many goods. You will feel reminds a little of the robber barons of the middle ages. The plant itself and the medieval spectacle are already worth seeing. The show ranked tournament was ok, however by the well-rehearsed "action music" for our little too loud.

  • Burg Satzvey is one of the most beautiful castles in Western Germany. It's surrounded by beautiful streams, open fields, lots of forests and a beautiful local community. This castle regularly organizes medieval markets and concerts of medieval bands for fair prices. If you are interested in medieval history, this is a place you shouldn't miss out on.
  • Lovely place. Very beautiful.
  • Unfortunately nothing was happening when we visited since it was winter. Very nice to see nonetheless. Will definitely return in spring/ summer
  • Great castle and medieval fair. Worth a visit
  • Satzvey Castle surely belongs to one of the most beautiful (n they claim to be the best maintained) moated castles in in North Rhine-Westphalia. It is stil unknown the exact built year of this place but its surely older than the year of 1396 - their first found written document. Like some castles in Germany, this castle is owned and run by a royal Family named Count Beissel von Gymnich for over 300 years and they live there as well. This family organizes regular historic festivals throughout the year (ie. Easter & Spring Festivals, Knight Shows, Helloween and so on and the Seasonal Bazaar/Markets. This castle is reachable both by train (only 3 min walking distance from the Train Station Satzvey) as well as car through A1, exit 111 Wisskirchen. I wonder if we could visit the Christmas Market this year as I've never been there during Winter time n surely one of the Advent Weekends would be just perfect.
