Auf Schoenburg, Oberwesel, 55430, Germany

The 13th-century fortress is one of the most hauntingly romantic places in Europe. Its stones have survived countless histories: throughout the Middle Ages wealthy nobles lived here, accumulating monies from river traffic tolls; during the 17th-century Palatinate Heritage War, the French Army set the castle on fire; it was abandoned for more than two centuries until, in the late 1800’s, an American of German descent purchased the property and sold it to another family, who turned it into a hotel in the 1950’s.
