About the property

Moated castle Unsleben

Our moated castle offers you four original holiday domiciles, which have one thing in common: tranquillity, romance and a burg character. Surrounded by the protecting moat with colourful fish, you can experience a world that is very rare in Germany: A private castle, which is still inhabited today and invites you to be a guest for a while. The holiday apartment 'Burghäuschen“ has 2 bedrooms, bathroom, living room with kitchenette and a cosy fireplace oven. The 'Castle Apartment“ attracts through its architecture uniqueness, historic equipment and paintings on the ceilings and walls along with modern comfort. The 'Falkennest“ combines a unique view from the chapel tower in all directions with cosy living for 1-2 people in historic walls! In the 'Gärtnerhaus“, large families or 2-3 couples will feel comfortable as well: it offers space for up to 6-7 people!

Household help and/or child care: A unique domicile awaits you, which lets you forget all stress and everyday problems. You have the possibility to dive into the world as our ancestors knew it. Be our guest and relax in tranquillity, romance and wonderful nature – without having to miss the comfort of the modern times. We try to provide you with a very relaxing stay. This also includes you being able to not have to do household work – we offer an extra household help which can be booked. This means we do your laundry and iron, shopping and cleaning. Take time and relax!

For the small guests, the Unsleben kindergarten offers great care options for low prices for whole-days or half-days. Children are welcome, it also includes 6-8 year old children. The kindergarten is around 200 m from the castle, it can be reached comfortably in 5 min on foot.

Cycling and hiking paradise in front of the house: The marked paths begin right by the moat. Whether with a dog, bicycle, children or just on foot – here everyone gets what they want. A walk through the charming landscape around the castle is relaxing and lets you forget everyday stress.

And those who do not want to go on a simple walk, the hiking paradise of the Rhone has nearly infinite paths in the mountain and valley, steep and flat, by the river or on the high moor.

Diverse excursion options: The surroundings invite you to go on different types of excursions: Culture in Meiningen, Wurzburg, Fulda and the surrounding area. Don’t forget in Bad Kissingen and other cities with sophisticated and comprehensive concert and theatre programs await you in the summer. Those who want to swim can go to the Triamare in Bad Neustadt/ Saale and will find fun and movement for low prices. But also a few kilometres to the lake.

The moated castle is in Unsleben, a 900-resident village, between Bad Neustadt/ Saale and Mellrichstadt. It is located peacefully on the edge of the city, yet just a few minutes on foot from all shops (Schlecker, village stores, baker, butcher, bank, doctor, pharmacy, dentist) in the village. Once you leave the castle courtyard, you will find nature. Long hiking paths on the Streu River or over the hills of the Rhone invite you to short or long excursions on foot or by bicycle. The beautiful golf course Maria Bildhausen on the monastery premises in Münnerstadt attracts golf lovers (15 min. drive away)! Slopes and ski lift are about a 20 minute drive away (for example, Wasserkuppe, Arnsber lifts, Zuckerfeld). The private castle garden invites you to rest and relax in a green environment. Historic walls surround an old family owned property, which is looking for families.

Other Activities: Canoeing, gliding and sport flying

Golf: The beautiful golf course Maria Bildhausen is a 10 minute drive from Münnerstadt. Golfers will find an 18-hole championship course and a 6-hole course in the soft hilly landscapes of the Rhone. The special thing about this course is that even here you can have the feeling of freedom while golfing even if 200 people are playing at the same time. The well-designed course – two circuits – makes this possible. The golf course is the only golf course owned and located on the premises of a monastery!

Ski: A 20 minute drive away from Unsleben, you can reach the popular ski regions in the Rhone. This includes the Kreuzberg, the Wasserkuppe, Zuckerfeld, etc. In the skiing and snowing paradise Wasserkuppe you will also find excellent sledding conditions, even with a sledding lift. Unsleben itself has a small sledding slope, which allows for a lot of fun for both the young and the old.

Wir waren anlässlich einer Hochzeit im Wasserschloss, dafür war es sehr praktisch _ ortsnah, kurze Wege. Der Ort Unsleben ist ein Dorf zum Entschuldigen und mit sehr begrenztem Angebot.

Tolles Ambiente, freundlicher Kontakt

  • 5 of 5

Wer einmal wissen möchte, wie es ist auf einer Burg zu wohnen, der ist hier genau richtig. Ein eigener Kamin in der Stube sorgt für das kuschlige Warm auch an frischen Oktobertagen. Das Bett im gemütlichen Turmzimmer ist ein ganz besonderes Extra.

♥ Beste Erholung in märchenhafter Umgebung ♥

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben das Wasserschloss (und dort das Burghäuschen) für ein verlängertes Wochenende gebucht und es war herrlich! Schon die Buchung war freundlich, rasch und persönlich. Unsere verspätete Anreise war kein Problem. Das Schloss - sogar bei Dunkelheit - zauberhaft. Das Burghäuschen blitzeblank, stil- und liebevoll eingerichtet. Es fehlte an nichts. Sogar vorgeheizt wurde für uns ♥...

Morgens lichtdurchflutetes Schlafzimmer. Vielfältige Vogelstimmen, die wir so, aus unseren heimatlichen Gefilden, noch nie gehört haben. Das Wasser des Schlossgrabens reflektierte im Sonnenlicht an der Zimmerdecke.... Man wollte gar nicht aus den Federn ♛

Knusprige Brötchen beim Bäcker um die Ecke, ebenso wie frische Milch beim Dorfladen. Wunderbare Natur. Bei bestem Wetter von Fladungen die Hochrhönstraße entlang zum Moor (sehr interessant) weiter zum Kreuzberg (eindrucksvoll). Herrliche Natur, goldener Raps überall - glücklicher Hund.

Abends erschöpft in die Kissen gefallen, seeliges Pubertier - dank WLAN.

Auch Städtehopping war schön: Bad Neustadt, Bischofsheim a.d. Rhön, Bad Kissingen, Schweinfurt....

Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt im Wasserschloss Unsleben. Herzlichen Dank für die schöne Zeit.

Fam. H.

Schön war's...

  • 5 of 5 Unsleben. Wir waren ein bisschen verdutzt, dass wir bei der Ankuft vom sehr netten Schlossherren empfangen wurden und das romantische Torhäuschen hinter uns ließen, um in ein weniger imposantes Nebengebäude geführt zu werden. Aber drinnen war es dann doch sehr gemütlich. Die ersten kalten Tage hatten das Gebäude ziemlich ausgekühlt, aber kräftige Heizer und nicht zuletzt der Kaminofen hatten bald alles warm. Die Umgebung ist schön für kleine Rundgänge. Besonders hat uns die jüdische Ortsgeschichte mit ehem. Synagoge und Waldfriedhof fasziniert.

Außergewöhnliche Ferienwohnung

  • 5 of 5

Der Aufenthalt im Burghäuschen war vor allem für unsere Kinder etwas sehr sehr Besonderes - hat man doch nicht alle Tage die Möglichkeit, in einem alten Schloss mit Burggraben zu wohnen. Die Unterkunft war sauber, die Eigentümer sind sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend. Wir kommen bestimmt mal wieder nach Schloss Unsleben.
