  • On a ridge high above the Rhine near Niederheimbachu Castle Sooneck, that wouldn't make a disgrace in any fairy tale. It comes in about the year 1271 and was managed by the master of the Hohenfelsem. Šlechtičtí feudalisté but poked his own pocket money to the monastery and the popudili King Rudofla against each other, who besieged and conquered the Castle and removed. Of course, not him personally, but his troops. Long after the ban was in force to repair the Castle. Has many legends about that time, on the blank, shooters, oak, who served as gallows.. ... In April 1346 gave the Archbishop Henry III. From Mainz Sooneckův Castle John Knightovi Marshall of Waldeck and let him stand again. Alternated with gradually varying family ... until 1689, when the castle was destroyed by the armies of Louis XIV. The place was owned by the village of Niederheimbach and later. In 1834, the then Crown Prince of Prussia's Frederick William IV. And his brothers, Prince William, Charles and Albert bought completely abandoned the Castle and the years between 1834 and 1861 rebuilt as a hunting lodge. During the reconstruction, which was designed by the military architect Carl Schnitzler, historic buildings have been largely preserved with the addition of buildings in a romantic medieval style and the charm of the castle of the Knights we can admire today. The device is primarily in the neo-gothic castle and biedermaierském style. Panoramic images owned by the Hohenzollern family and since 1991 by Köth-Wanscheid Family Foundation, and drawings and sketches by Johann-Caspar Schneider. Since 2002 is part of the Rhine Gorge Sooneck castle on the list of UNESCO World Heritage sites. Exploring the Castle, where around every corner waiting for the Dragon, which necessarily includes the fairy tale is very nice. Admire views of the Rhine, in the vineyards. You can climb up the stairs, nakukujete into small cubicles, where everything is inviting to the hotel directly. You can see some of the beautiful painted stained glass, paintings, watercolours, drawings ... furniture, armor. Everything is very nicely organized, and you just wonder how previously in small spaces. Today there is a place available to the bridal suite of the Dragon, the possibility of marriage right here close to celebrate. The atmosphere perfect for such a romance.

  • This castle is beautiful on the outside but the "preservations" done are not true to the period and the few pieces of furniture were shabby, and the art work not well preserved. We were told there wou...  more »
