Reviewed 4 April 2018

Little to add to the previous contributor other than to agree. We were on the first APT Amsterdam to Budapest cruise of 2018 and visited here after going into Cologne earlier in the day. Very attentive staff keep you topped up with champagne and canapes on arrival then you are at liberty to wander and explore certain areas of the castle. May be better later in the year to sample the gardens. Excellent dinner and piano recital. The castle has developed strong musical connections. If you're on the cruise, don't miss this.

The 14th Century Namedy Castle is owned by Princess Heide von Hohenzollern and her family and is open for special events, weddings and solely to APT cruises for a Gala Night including a champagne reception, a welcome speech by the Princess herself, a tour at leisure of the castle and its grounds and a marvelous 3 course dinner with local wines in the grand Mirror Hall followed by an exceptional piano recital by an up and coming young soloist. If you are on an APT cruise, make sure you attend this fantastic night. You are made to feel like royalty by an excellent hostess who does what she can for the local community by inviting the young folk of Andernach to help her entertain you on this special occasion. Sheer bliss.

Our APT group visited the castle last night for a delightful evening. Princess Heidi is a very gracious hostess sharing her family home with selected groups for dinners and weddings.The dinner was delicious and the piano concert was wonderful.The young wait staff provided fast efficient, friendly service.

A lovely "small" castle located within the Andernach area that offers occasional musical events, hosts weddings and, on this occasion, a dinner for 160+ people. One is able to walk through several rooms of the castle and out in the garden with little restriction. It is a very well maintained property and highly deserving of a visit if you get the chance

We went to Namedy Castle as part of our APT cruise and what a highlight it was. Every aspect was absolutely perfect! The grounds are beautiful, roses flowering abundantly at the time of our visit. The castle itself is certainly very old so maintenance must always be an issue but given the description of it's run down state at the time Princess Heide and her husband took it over there have been major renovation projects carried out to bring it up to it's present condition. The food served at dinner was beautiful, the classical musical recital amazing, and Princess Heide was there in person to welcome us and tell us about the history of the castle. A very special evening!
