Hotel Schloss Waldeck 4-star superior
at Waldeck castle
Waldeck castle rests on the remnants of an 11th-century fortification, towering over the town of Waldeck, in the district of Waldeck-Frankenberg in Hesse (Germany). The castle is situated to the north of the Kellerwald-Edersee nature reserve, 220 metres above the Edersee's north shore, on a steep, wooded rock close to the centre of the halftimbered town of Waldeck. What better place to take in the beautiful scenery!
Formerly the ancestral seat and residence of the Counts of Waldeck, the fortification was later used as military barracks. In 1734 it was a state penitentiary, and in subsequent years was used as state archive, forestry office, and, as early as 1906, was put to use as a hotel. Today it belongs to the Waldeckian domanial administration and is public property.
In September 2009, new leaseholder Volker Deigendesch reopened the redesigned Hotel Schloss Waldeck.
This is a peaceful haven for our guests. It was inspired by American clubs, which were designed for "gentlemen" to relax after work, for reading or for leisurely conversation, before going home to their families. This comfortable room, with its modern interpretation of classic elegance, is ideal for a drink from the adjoining bar, for reading the daily newspaper, or for playing a game of backgammon or chess, at the English card table.
The most beautiful day of a couple's life together. Everything should be perfect. Everything should be magnificent. Everything should be just as special as this couple, just like a fairytale happy end... So why not pick a fairytale location, like this beautiful castle registry office. These elegant old walls offer ample space for up to 20 people.
