A Visit to Mainberg Castle in Northern Bavaria, Germany

One of my stateside readers, whose ancestors lived and worked at the Mainberg Castle from 1822 -1842, was able to visit there for the first time last summer.

Quoted: “… we made arrangements to visit the castle, when our river cruise ship was docked at Würzburg. We only had less than 90 minutes at the castle, but had a nice tour by the caretaker…”

He then gave me permission to share the link to his Google photo album (amazing photos!) taken at Mainberg Castle: https://tiny.cc/xzdm5y

In general, if you are also interested in learning more about castles and palaces in Germany, then this might be your guide (e-book in English).

Bavarian Castle in Zeilitzheim

A couple of months ago, I wrote about our  visit to Barockschloss Zeilitzheim, where we had spent one night. We usually stay with family when we go back for a visit to my Heimatland, but at that time, it was not possible. So what looked initially like an inconvenience (looking for new accommodation),  turned into a very pleasant experience. As a matter of fact, it was so pleasant that I ended up buying my sister and her husband a gift-certificate for a one-night stay. And they  live only 20 km away from the castle!

Schloss Zeilitzheim (Zeilitzheim Castle) is a Baroque country estate near Volkach in Germany’s winemaking region of Franconia in northwestern Bavaria. The castle hotel has been run by the von Halem family for the past twenty years and Alexander von Halem has just published an English website called bavariancastle.
