The castle was already closed when we arrived but we walked in the castle area and took some pictures. There is a chapel on the hill, a Neo-Romanesque sepulchre chapel. From the chapel area you have a beautiful view of Mespelbrunn

Lovely peaceful place, this was our second time here. Sadly the paths, and roads were ice covered and the lady of the castle said it was too dangerous to open all that day.

The castle is interesting but don't bother if you don't speak very good german! The castle is also kind of in the middle of nowhere, we struggled to find anywhere to get a drink / snack.
