This 13th century castle sits high on a hill between the towns of Ansbach and Rothenburg ob der Tauber. Visitors can see it well before reaching it! Castle Colmberg is easy to find, just two roads off the Autobahn, then follow the easy-to-read signs. The hotel has a spacious room with stone walls that can accommodate a family of five (5).

Sandy and her family stayed one night in the summer of 2008.
We first parked where there were other cars. Then, we walked over cobblestones, through a courtyard with many tables, into the only open doorway we could see. There, we found the check-in desk. The desk clerk told us we could drive our car closer to unload and then return our car to the parking area. Hotel staff offered assistance to carry our luggage up three short sets of stairs – two were carpeted, one was constructed of polished, yet very old looking wide planks with pronounced waves – hang on to the railing!
Our room had a very high ceiling, with heavy dark beams and walls of four foot thick stone. The room was filled with two mammoth, ornately carved, wood twin bed frames pushed together, a heavy, carved desk, and a substantial wardrobe plus a small sofa with a pull-out bed for two people, and an extra cot. Furthermore, a lovely window with curtain rods that swung into the room for opening looked out to the stunning valley below.
The bathroom was pristine and large, with gleaming white tiles and a tub. Unexpectedly, it had a fan! (Most of the hotels on our Europe trip did not have a fan.)
We ate dinner outside in the hotel courtyard, where we had the option to add the bill to our room expense. There were other families with kids dining, and some children were playing nearby.
Breakfast was served in a room near the front desk, with dark beams and stone walls. There were plenty of booth tables available. The food was spread buffet style and included vegetables, fruits, meats, cheeses, juices, and rolls. Coffee and eggs were available.
It was thrilling to stay in this quiet, comfortable castle. See the hotel’s history page to read about the castle’s past.
