This Weinberg hotel in Würzburg is an experience in itself. There is nothing to suggest what a magnificent view of Würzburg and the vineyards of the Würzburger Stein awaits us. Here we start our journey on the Route of the pleasures, This journey finally takes us through the worlds of pleasure in Franconia, Hesse and Baden. Our navigation system steers us from the A3 in the eastern part of Würzburg. However, we quickly leave the place again. Instead, we approach via avenues of the back of the castle hotel.
We are looking forward to the view of Würzburg and its surroundings. After all, the Schlosshotel Steinburg is one of the sightsleeping hotels. These promise "sleep for eye people". These are hotels that guarantee beautiful views and a tasteful ambience.
Weinberg Hotel in Würzburg - the Schlosshotel Steinburg
The view of the Marienfestung, the Alte Brücke, the city center of Würzburg, the Main and the steep slopes of the Würzburger Stein is definitely sensational. The Schlosshotel Steinburg is the only vineyard hotel in Würzburg. Some of the vineyards of the Würzburger Stein have been owned by the hotel for several years. The majority of the vineyard - 98% of it - is managed by three Würzburg wineries Bürgerspital zum Heiligen Geist, Juliusspital and Staatlicher Hofkeller. From our room in the refuge we look out over the vineyards belonging to the Bezold family of hoteliers.
The country castle, the dream castle and the refuge
The Bezold family bought the castle hotel 1937 from the Bürgerspital Foundation. She has since built it with a keen sense of the history of the house into a modern hotel. The castle hotel consists of three parts, the new refugium and the two older tracts: the country castle and the dream castle. However, since this is a 1898 building with stairs and winding corridors, this proves to be difficult. For example, installations such as air conditioning or elevators can not be integrated in the older parts of the hotel. One does not want to destroy the charm of the castle with lift shafts and air conditioners.
For this reason, the rooms in the country castle and dream castle have been carefully modernized. For guests who prefer air-conditioned rooms and barrier-free access to the rooms, the stone castle of 2012 has been added to the sanctuary. However, the hotel is not accessible in all its areas. The restaurants in the castle wing can only be reached by stairs. If you want to enjoy the view from the hotel terrace in the summer, you can reach it via a stairless access.
I found it very pleasant that we could choose the room when booking. At midsummer temperatures, we preferred an air-conditioned room in the retreat. We chose one that offered us a view of Würzburg and the vineyard. In addition, it was quieter than the rooms directly above the Main due to its peripheral location. Train operation and the course of the main road there provide a constant background noise.
Meet, marry and relax at Schlosshotel Steinburg
The refuge is especially tailored to the needs of conference guests. The construction is successful, the Schlosshotel Steinburg belongs to the best conference hotels in Germany. At any rate, this announces a blackboard at the entrance. The break in between is also taken care of. In the pool of the hotel you can pull your tracks and then relax on the lawn overlooking Würzburg.
If you prefer a nightcap instead, you can enjoy it in the hotel's wine cellar. Or you join a vineyard tour, which is offered at 15.00 on Saturdays in the summer months.
If you are looking for a location for a wedding or a family or corporate event, the Schlosshotel Steinburg offers a selection of rooms. They range from the guest room to the wine bar with access to the hotel terrace, including views of the city.
Culinary delights with a view from the Weinberg Hotel
However, we enjoyed the most beautiful hours at Schlosshotel Steinburg on the hotel terrace. The view over the city on the Marienfestung, the Main and the vineyards, the dinner tasted again so good.
A starter made of chanterelle cappucino with fried char under tarragon topping was followed by a duck breast on mango vinegar with bacon chanterelles and olive bulgur. Finally, there was a Hugo “with a difference”: Lemon sorbet on mint jelly with Secco foam and elderflower pudding. The next morning we enjoyed our gourmet breakfast on the hotel terrace. What could be better than starting the day with a cup of coffee with fresh bread and a view that sweeten the beginning of the day. The only thing we regret is that the Schlosshotel Steinburg is almost five hours away by car. Otherwise we would certainly be there more often.
