“A great experience ”
Review of Castle Namedy

Castle Namedy
Ranked #3 of 40 things to do in Andernach
Attraction details
Reviewed 16 August 2018 via mobile

We were fortunate enough to visit as part of an APT tour to enjoy the beauty of Schloss Burg Namedy. This includes a presentation from the current owner outlining the history and importance to her family followed by dinner- with time to walk the house and grounds in between.
I understand that this is available for functions but sorry I am unsure how you can get the same access without an organised event but if you are in the locale it is well worth investigating as it is a good evening out.

What a wonderful experience, we were on one o APT wonderful cruises and this was most definitely the highlight of the cruise for us, Castle Namedy and the wonderful hostess Princess Heidi. firstly I have to say it was March and it was freezing and we my husband and I did wonder if we should go, coming from a warm country we feel the cold and thought the Castle would probably be freezing. We are so thankful we did go though, it was an amazing evening, cocktails, dinner and a chat about the history of the Castle, and I have to say the Castle was as warm as toast. We were lucky also to have a chat with the Princess and have a few photos taken. She is a warm and charming host and I wouldn't have missed the experience for anything and goodness only knows what it must cost to heat a castle of this size! We were allowed to wander about, exploring the rooms asking questions, reading books in the library, by the end of the evening you felt as if you were in fact a part of this Castle and the family. Wonderful,, wonderful evening and thank you APT for making this happen

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.
