The Sparrenburg is located in the castle. In such places, the view is often better than the food but on this occasion the food was excellent. I enjoyed the wildgulasch. It was snowing outside so there were very few customers but the service was fine.

Meals are served either inside or on the terrace; be aware that on a hot, sunny day, many tables do not have much shade. The locals do not seem to mind this but I think Australians are much more conscious of... More

the kids could run around the castle walls until the food arrived, and we were able to sit outside and enjoy the view on a hot summer's evening. A wedding party had what sounded like a recorder quartet playing dirges all night long with such appropriate hits as: oh baby, please don't go etc. The food was ok but we... More
