Enchanting, Lavish Location
This impressive mountainside castle, previously used as a boarding school, military hospital and refugee centre, was renovated in 1997 into the current luxury hotel it is today. The drive onto the grounds is breathtaking while the lobby is magnificent upon entry. Just a stroll to Bensberg, with views over Koln and a twenty-two minute ride into Cologne, you won't miss out on things to do here. The spa is popular among both locals and guests, so book in advance if you can. The on-site dining options are a must, especially Vendome, which ranks annually among top world restaurants. The breakfast selection is extensive and usually includes champagne.
