It looks like coming directly out of a fairy tale, but it's true: On the top of a basalt rock, Castle Braunfels with its magnificent silhouette majestically  overlooks the town and greets its visitors from afar. Family-owned for 800 years, the castle is a living cultural monument full of exceptional art treasures and still inhabited by the princely family today. In the course of the centuries the castle's appearance and interior have changed, the complex was rebuilt and enlarged many times. During the guided tours history becomes alive: Visitors hear about the castle's eventful development and about the history of the princely family who established ontacts all over Europe and the United States of America. The cultural events taking place against the background of the historical scenery of the castle courtyard and gardens are a special treat, open-air opera performances, for example. The castle's visitor programme is characterised by christian family tradition and open-mindedness towards the guests from all over the world. With flexible opening hours all year round and every day, the castle offers its visitors an unusually broad variety of guided tours and events, attracting visitors of all ages and interests.
