Herr Kraus was the perfect host. Short bus ride to the U-Bahn and into Nuremberg in no time. All this and you get to stay in a real castle! Our host was very helpful with plenty of suggestions on dining and transportation.Typical German apartment was exactly what we wanted. Really, don't stay in the city. Kornburg has everything you could possibly want. Already looking at our dates for next year!

Romantic Castle with Awesome Owners

  • 5 of 5

The castle has the true feel of a medieval fortress including mote, bridge ( without the water of course ) tall tower and stone walls. There are several different apartments to chose from, each with their own character and decor. We chose one on the ground floor and loved everything about the place. There is a fully stocked kitchen, with fridge, microwave, oven, stove, coffee maker, pots, pans, bowl and utensils. I like to cook and though this is not like your own kitchen but I thought most everything I needed for simple meals was available except the ingredients which I picked up at a grocery store in the next village. For simple goods, coffee, butter, bread and pastries everything is within 3 min walking distance. There are also at least three restaurants that we visited and loved within 3-5 min walking distance. The owners of the White Lamb?? ( I can't remember the name right now) are 100% friendly (they opened food service for my family when we arrived late after a full day of playing ). That gesture felt beyond kind and made them feel at home. I could go on about the friendly people in town ( every store we visited) but let's go back to the accommodations. Our room had a large living area with kitchen nook, dinning table, two single beds and a lot of vintage decorations which added to the castle feel. The modern bathroom and shower tub are located in a separate room off the entrance and are tastefully decorated with plenty of towels and hot water. The master bedroom has a television, a beautiful double bed and plenty of space to hang up clothes in the closet or just lounge on the couch. There is no air conditioning but the thick walls keep the place very comfortable. There is wifi available but due to the thick walls connection levels vary with the apartment you choose and your location in the apartment. Not a big deal ... I recommend spending more time enjoying the Court yard which is nicely decorated with flowers and/or walking around town. The owners offer laundry service for a small fee. All OUR needs were met and exceeded by the location, accommodations and the people we meet. Peter and his wife are friendly, helpful and work hard to make your stay a pleasant one. The only down side was that I had only planned for three nights at this location, next time it will be at least a week!

Excellent stay as always!

  • 5 of 5

Alfred is a wonderful host each time we stay. We are usually there for the winter and his place is never cold, always spotlessly clean, and very quiet. I can't say enough wonderful things about the place. The town is also extremely quaint and has everything you need close by. There are 2 bakeries where we share our business and an Aldi not more than a mile down the road. The restaurants there, we have frequented them all, have never stopped to impress us with outstanding food and unbelievable prices and the most gracious hosts. We have never felt like strangers in this town....definitely worth the visit. The Schloss, is the icing on the cake.

Toller Aufenthalt auf der Burg

  • 5 of 5

Wer sich einmal wie ein Burgherr oder ein Burgfräulein fühlen möchte, der ist auf der Kornburg richtig!

Der Kontakt mit dem Vermieter war einfach und unkompliziert.

Und als das Warmwasser in der Küche nicht so richtig wollte, war er sofort zur Stelle und hat das Problem sofort beseitigt.

Als Ausgangabasis für Ausflüge nach Nürnberg und Umgebung ist die Kornburg hervorragend geeignet.

Und wer abends nicht kochen mag, dem sei der Gasthof Weißes Lamm (eine Tischreservierung ist hier nicht verkehrt) oder die dazu gehörige Metzgerei zu empfehlen.

Und den morgendliche Weg zur Bäckerei Nusselts kann man auch nur ans Herz legen.

Alles in allem haben wir uns in der Kornburg sehr wohlgefühlt und können diese auch nur weiterempfehlen.

Stylish, peaceful castle near Nuremburg

  • 4 of 5

We stayed a week in this old castle in a renovated apartment. The place is charming and stylish, with thick, high stone walls and a very nice courtyard. There are plenty of attractions within easy reach by car, although the castle is in a quiet spot and well away from the flesh pots. The apartment itself was clean and well maintained, with a smart TV, comfortable beds and a nice little open plan kitchen, with everything one needs. The folk are also very friendly and helpful. An ideal base from which to explore Nuremburg and surrounds.
