  • We visited the Burg for the Weinachtsmarkt that proved to be very relaxed. There was plenty of food and drink available. The products sold were moderate, could be more xmas like but the whole atmosphe...  more »
  • "Castle Christmas" at Satzvey. The location is wonderful, very atmospheric and especially the nativity play and the lighting are worth a visit. The entrance fee of €8 are still moderate in view of the fact that the entire system has a huge maintenance and maintenance, and I pay it gladly. It is of course very full, but the terrain is spread out enough. Only in cafés or on the 'feeding stands"it occasionally longer snakes. The journey is straightforward, especially by train - by continuous Cologne from trains travelling time about 45 minutes. The station is located about 400m from the Castle. But now to the negative points: the culinary offer is unfortunately mostly not really appealing and overpriced. Two French fries stands with the usual Curry sausage or the tabs sausage from the electric Grill. The absolute low point is however the place with the really heinous "Knight skewer" - pieces of pork that are deep fried in hot oil to death, or the equivalent of "vegan" - potato slices on a skewer inserted and also fried, and fetttriefend served... Well, there are still things like flame salmon and Tarte Flambée are the really solid if also not cheap. The wonderful sausages are good (also of wild boar - very tasty!) from the stand at the dealers hintenraus - finally from the charcoal grill, or the pancakes. There are also two Cafés that also offer dishes, albeit nothing persons. Minus point two: The range of the dealer. People! More fairground as middle ages. Unfortunately far too much cheap level from Asia, such as bling-bling jewelry stuff or any doll and clothing Balderdash. I was expecting almost a stand that sold cheap pots and pans. It all culminated in a booth full of ugly Goblin-like garden ornaments made of cast material in stone look. Or even the stands in the Hall... usually some cheap stuff. Why is that so? Let's take an example in the market in Siegburg or also on other medieval markets and creates a more pertinent to the Castle and on the subject of atmosphere with pass-endenderen traders and stalls. You really lack more artisan booths which offer their goods or who have at least a range of tasteful and not this stuff on sale. In the other events, it is unfortunately not different at Satzvey! While the potential exists, the castle is really a gem. You can stay here also, offers this on air BnB.

  • We go with friends and the children of the medieval Christmas market at Satzvey Castle for 3 years. The incredibly great scenery of the Castle needed no explanation, it is fantastic. An entrance fee of €8 for adults, €4 for children, can I find reasonable. Occurring there each year Santa Claus with his elves on stage is a real change from the other Christmas markets also class and for the little ones. The Christmas story with actors, real camels and sheep to each specified times presented in medieval language (I think the Barbar personally involved there, am here but unsure) is worth the trip. Why, I can give a full evaluation, is - in my eyes - untapped potential, that offers this market in this unique environment. Here, the makers should consider to distribute, etc. and for this if necessary to avoid jugglers, storytellers, medieval bakeries, entertainment whose goods my opinion anyway, nobody buys a few vendors of overpriced junk and kitsch stalls more medieval flair. Satzvey Castle could really get a real differentiator and himself as "THE medieval Christmas market" rise in the region and beyond.

  • 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.
  • It is a nice place to stay hospitality and care is extremely good
  • Went there during a Easter Market and the place is amazing, but a little expensive. I would like to visit the interior of the main building...
  • Beautiful / Wundershön / Schitterend
  • One of the most beautiful moated castles of the Rhineland, quite a few enjoyable hours we spent in this beautiful setting. You can find many events spread throughout the year, special are the many different tournaments for both small and large. With friends or family, I can fully recommend a visit.
