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.

Tolle Gruppenunterkunft in idyllischem Ambiente

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren mit einer Gruppe von 7 Menschen mit Behinderung und 3 Betreuern in dem Ferienhaus Alte Brauerei im Schloss Unsleben. Die Unterkunft war sauber und gepflegt, die Vermieter sehr nett und wir fühlten uns rundum wohl. Es gibt sehr viele Ausflugsmöglichkeiten in der Gegend und wir konnten sogar Grillen mit Blick auf's Wasserschloss. Sehr zu empfehlen.

Die Unterkunft entsprach der Beschreibung

  • 4 of 5

Das Personal und der Graf waren sehr nett und zuvorkommend.

Die Ausflugs-Tipps waren sehr hilfreich.

In der alten Brauerei haben wir uns sehr wohl gefühlt, vor allem die Kinder hatten Spaß in den alten Mauern.

Da wir leider nur zwei Übernachtungen hatten, benötigten wir keine weitere Unterstützung.

Lediglich der Küche würden ein paar stabilere Stühle gut tun.

Wir können unsere Unterkunft mit ruhigem Gewissen weiter empfehlen!

Schöne Zeit in schöner Umgebung

  • 5 of 5

Die Zeit in der Unterkunft war wirklich schön und verging leider viel zu schnell. Besonders hervorzuheben ist das wahnsinnig nette, stets hilfsbereite und fröhliche Personal - wir fühlten uns wirklich willkommen und auf alle Wünsche wurde gut eingegangen. Wir würden die Unterkunft allen die mit größeren Gruppen verreisen wollen jederzeit sofort empfehlen!

Wundervoller Aufenthalt

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren für ein Freundetreffen im September zum ersten Mal auf Schloss Unsleben und fühlten uns gleich wohl.

Für 15 Erwachsene und 2 Kleinkinder haben wir sowohl die "Alte Brauerei" wie auch das "Gärtnerhaus" gebucht gehabt.

Bei Ankunft wurden wir gleich nett begrüßt und uns alles in Ruhe gezeigt und erklärt.

Die Ausstattung, Zustand und Sauberkeit der Häuser ist sehr gut. Da wir wirklich Glück mit dem Wetter hatten, verbrachten wir die meiste Zeit draußen. Dafür wurden uns freundlicher Weise Bierbänke und -tische zur Verfügung gestellt, so dass wir gleich vor dem Haus im Hof sitzen konnten.

Aber auch bei schlechteren Wetter sicherlich kein Problem: Das Haus ist großzügig bemessen und alle finden sowohl in Küche als auch im Wohnzimmer auf bequemen Sofas Platz.

Dazu kommt natürlich die wunderschöne Umgebung und die Schlossanlage, die sich ganz hervorragend im frühherbstlichen Sonnenwetter präsentierte.

Praktisch: nur wenige Schritte entfernt gibt es einen kleinen Dorfladen, der alles wichtige führt, eine Sparkasse, einen guten Metzger und auch Bäcker.

Es war unser erster Aufenthalt auf Schloss Unsleben - aber sicherlich nicht der letzte. Die nächsten Treffen dort sind schon angedacht ;)

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.
