Reviewed 21 August 2017

We went to this place as part of an APT river cruise, Burg Namedy is located on one of the most beautiful parts of the Rhine river. We did a tour of the castle and the beautiful gardens. The castles history dates back to the 14th century. We had a lovely meal in the Hall of Mirrors and the most amazing piano recital. Wonderful night out.

This outing was part of our river cruise and was billed as an exclusive offering, only to find that it is available on the web for anyone to book. The castle itself was a disappointment. Grand it isn't compared to other buildings we've view on trips to Europe. The building's features were not even up to the standard of our own home, an Edwardian. The grounds were in ordinary condition with the lawn full of weeds. One of our group stood in dog business. The table setting was similar to that provided at a cheap wedding with ten of us cramped onto a table suited for no more than eight. I'm a big bloke and had a table leg right in front of me, so without comfortable access to the table.The acoustics in the dining room couldn't cope with the crowd and the noise level was, at times, unbearable. On a positive note, the pianist was brilliant and by far the highlight of the evening. The event proved to be far less than my expectations.

I don't know where to start but from the moment we were taken through the gates and entered the courtyard, we were taken into royalty. Champagne and canapés on arrival and then a heart warming introduction to this beautiful castle by Princess Heide herself who was such a heartwarming genuine person. We were invited to explore the rooms and the gardens. After this, into the mirror ballroom for a lovely meal. We had a beautiful pianist tickle the ivories and it took me back in time. All I can say is this is a beautiful place and an amazing experience. Huge highlight on our trip.

Welcomed by a real live princess this visit to her home was one of the highlights of our APT tour. Princess Heide von Hohenzollern stood out on the steps to welcome us with drinks and canapés supplied. We were then allowed to tour first the garden and then much of the castle with it's lovely old furniture and fittings. Make sure you see the bathroom.
A lovely dinner was provided and a recital on a grand piano was the entertainment.
Altogether a wonderful experience to shake the hand of a princess.

The dining hall was impressive with the high architecture. Princess Heide von Hohenzollern was very welcoming to guests. As part of the dinner course a piano recital was performed during two intermissions. The hall had very good acoustics for musical performances. See how the rooms in the other parts of the castle compare with our modern day expectations. This activity needs to be pre-booked with the tour.
