A Beautiful and Unique Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5 and we were comfortable and impressed with the nicely updated and appointed kitchen and bathroom of this clean and tidy holiday apartment. Everything that you would need in a kitchen is in place to include a dishwasher! Gorgeous custom cabinets, granite counter tops, and high end stainless steel appliances allows you to cook to your heart's desire, if you so choose. Huge bathroom with extra large soaking tub and open shower area. The walls of the apartment and the floor of the bathroom are all heated which made for a very cozy apartment during the cold winter days. There is a fireplace too! The custom made beds were comfortable and big fluffy comforters allowed us all to get a good night's sleep. Antique furniture complete the rooms, all beautiful and functional.

The Leuschner's and their son were very gracious hosts and most helpful with our day trips giving us great suggestions of what to do and see. We were given a full tour of the castle and learned of it's history. They have put their hearts and a lot of hard work into their historic castle and it was much appreciated!

We loved the location of the castle, enjoyed the beautiful Bavarian countryside and the surrounding towns and villages.

This was a memorable Christmas trip for us and was made special by the Leuschner's. For that, we are very grateful!

Owner's Response: What can such an old castle like ours do better than to give guests a pleasant stay behind its thick walls. Satisfied visitors are incidentally the best reward for our long struggle for the preservation of a nationally important monument and the best proof that our decision was right then. A big thank you for the compliment.

Unique, Comfortable, and Classy Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our family with five children, ages 5-14, recently stayed at this very interesting and well-equipped holiday suite. We were delighted with the accommodation on every point. It is well-appointed, rich in history and character. The property itself was nestled in a quaint village within short driving distance of numerous outings and train stations. The kitchen is very well equipped and the dining area/family room was a great gathering spot. The Leuschners made us feel very comfortable and went above and beyond our expectations of service. They also gave a lovely tour and history of their home which we all enjoyed. Our children enjoyed exploring the grounds and riding horses at a nearby horse stable. We highly recommend this property and would happily return; truly a "fairytale" getaway.

Wunderschöne Erinnerung an Schloss Hofstetten

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben eine wundervolle, erholsame Woche in Schloss Hofstetten verbracht. Auch als es draußen dann kalt wurde, hat uns die integrierte Wandheizung zusammen mit dem Kachelofen ein angenehmes Raumklima bereitet. Sehr beeindruckt hat uns die liebevolle, fachgerechte und detailgetreue Restaurierung des Schlosses. Die spannende Führung durch das ganze Schloss durch Vater und Sohn Emanuel hat uns die Augen für die Kunst des Schloss-Restaurierens und -Bauens geöffnet. Überhaupt war die Begegnung mit der ganzen Familie - auch Frau Leuschner und die Großmutter haben wir noch kennen gelernt - durch ihre Herzlichkeit sehr bereichernd. Die Umgebung bietet zahlreiche Sehenswürdigkeiten (auch für Regenwetter), Wander- und Radfahrmöglichkeiten.

Vielen Dank!

Bis zu einem Wiedersehen

Owner's Response: Liebes Ehepaar B., mit ganz großer Freude haben wir Ihre Bewertung gelesen. Herzlichen Dank dafür. Wir freuen uns auch, wieder unser Ziel erreicht zu haben: die Gäste fühlen sich wohl und können sich erholen, nicht zuletzt auch wegen der schönen Räume, die uns das Mittelalter und der Barockbaumeister geschenkt haben. Auch wir freuen uns auf ein Wiedersehen mit so netten Mitbewohnern, wenn dies auch zeitlich begrenzt ist.

A beautiful, welcoming and very special place

  • 5 of 5

Our 10 day stay at Schloss Hofstetten was a truly exceptional experience. Everything was top level: the very professional, proactive and highly flexible way the owners handled the booking process, the logistics at arrival, their willingness to share information, and of course the apartment/castle itself, which is an absolute highlight.

You enter the castle at the main entrance, take the royal stairwell to the first floor, where the two apartments are situated. We stayed in the "small" one (which is actually pretty spacious). It occupies the whole right track of the first floor. It consists of three rooms that are connected through the hallway.

The living room (60 square meters) has a kitchen area, a sofa (which can be transformed to an additional bed), a dinner table with four chairs, and in one of the corners a cozy traditional chimney with two chairs and a small table. The room's height is 4 meters, and it has four large windows (with much sun in the afternoon and early evening). The kitchen furniture was designed by the owners, built by a professional carpenter, and consists of a workspace, a dishwasher, a two plate electric oven, a water cooker, and a coffee machine. All necessary kitchen utensils were there, everything was of high quality. The floor consists of the original broad wooden strokes.

The bedroom (opposite to the living room) has a high quality bed (again handmade by a professional carpenter; excellent mattresses) for two persons and a window to the West.

The very spacious bathroom has a WC, a shower, and also a bidet and a wardrobe.

All rooms were exceptionally clean. The whole castle had been completely renovated with great care a couple of years ago (the owners received several prizes for this), with much eye for historical detail, ecologically sustainable materials and technical structures (e.g. a fabulous heating system in the walls), and tasteful furnishing.

The castle is surrounded by an awesome and huge garden area, with several tables and chairs. You can park your car in the courtyard.

The village is within a beautiful hiking area, and it is only a 15-30 minute drive to Eichstätt, Ingolstadt, Neuburg/Donau.

The owners are extremely nice, and were perfect hosts, they immediately made us feel at home. We received a great guided tour of the castle, an exciting lecture in social and art history, architecture and regional politics.

We recommend this place without any hesitation.

herrlich !

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben wunderschöne Urlaubstage in Hofstetten verbracht und unsere Kinder sprechen immer wieder mit Begeisterung über das schöne Schloss.

Die liebvollen Gastgeber, die mit sehr viel Geschmack und Detailtreue renovierte Wohnung und die schöne und abwechslungsreiche Region von Eichstätt machen einen Aufenthalt in Hofstetten zu einen unvergesslichen Erinnerung.

Mit vielen freundlichen Grüßen aus Paris

Owner's Response: Liebe Grüße zurück nach Paris. Auch uns tut es stets gut, sich mit netten Gästen auszutauschen. Ich erinnere mich noch deutlich an so manches interessante Gespräch über Deutschland und Frankreich. Der Austausch von Erfahrungen ist auch für uns eine Bereicherung. Wenn Ihre Kinder heute noch von unserem Schloss schwärmen, freut uns das ganz besonders. Beweist es doch, dass die Mühen der zweiten Generalsanierung unseres Burg-Schlosses, die von 2002 bis 2012 dauerte, sich gelohnt haben. Viele liebe Grüße aus Hofstetten
