Schloss Hertefeld

A truly unique castle stay in the Lower Rhine

Schloss Hertefeld

If you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind stay in Germany, you can’t do much better than Hotel Schloss Hertefeld – the only inhabitable castle ruin in the country! Classic rooms equipped with modern technologies, gorgeous greenery and an enviable location on the banks of the river Niers – just 70km away from exciting Düsseldorf and three miles away from Weeze Airport – make our historic hotel an unmissable destination for cultural explorers.

Hotel Schloss Hertefeld is our family legacy. For over 800 years we’ve owned this historic castle hotel, and have stuck with it as it’s evolved through time – even when it was destroyed in the war in 1945. Decades later, in 2004, we partly rebuilt the property and transformed it into Germany’s only inhabitable castle ruin… a luxury experience with more than a touch of history at its heart. You’ll love the architecture in this baroque building, and the unique rooms and suites on offer. Stay in the former guard houses or castle tower for a getaway with a strong sense of heritage. Alternatively, the Heaven’s Suite is the perfect room for lovers. Among the most contemporary spaces we offer, this suite not only has two bathtubs, but you can open up the roof to gaze up at the night sky, too. It’s spectacular on a starry night. The special experiences at Hotel Schloss Hertefeld don’t stop there. Have breakfast in our atmospheric cross vaults or under the sun among the castle ruins, surrounded by a beautiful castle park that you’re welcome to explore. What’s more, if you want to go a little further afield, you can rent a bike from us – just ask a member of staff to assist you. Free parking is also available on-site.
