Hotel Rooms and Rates
We have 18 double rooms at Zeilitzheim Castle, all of which can also be used as single rooms.
Room rates are EUR 45,-- per person in a double room and EUR 65,-- in a single. There are also room combinations of two double rooms with a shared bathroom for up to 4 persons at EUR 150,--. These rates all include breakfast and local taxes.
If you book in advance, we will gladly arrange a "Brotzeit", a typical Franconia cold-cut and bread dinner for you (EUR 8,50 per person). Room and board is possible for groups of 10 and up. Drinks (wine, beer, mineral water and apple juice) is available for self-service from a fridge in the "Kaminzimmer", a room our guests can also use as a sitting room. Additionally, there are some great typically German restaurants in nearby Volkach. Please ask me for special tips on a restaurant.
Some of our rooms have four-poster beds. Here are a few pictures of just three of our eighteen rooms:
The "Maria Stuart" room has a four-poster bed originally from Balmoral Castle, Scotland, the home of Mary Queen of Scots. It has a narrow double-bed so it is suited primarily as a single room or as a double for a couple that wants to snuggle up!
This room overlooks the central courtyard of the castle with its fountain designed and made by my sister, Sibylle von Halem, an artist currently living in Austria.
All rooms have their own shower and WC. Bathrooms are equipped with hairdryers. In keeping with the flair and tradition of the country manor, there are no television sets or telephones in the rooms.
The "Balthasar Neumann" room is named after a famous architect of the Baroque period who was active in the region, most notably for being principal architekt of the Würzburg Residenz, a palace in nearby Würzburg. A visit to Würzburg with its Residenz and the fortified castle "Festung Marienberg" is a must for anyone traveling to Bavaria. This corner room is well-liked for its light and spaciousness, although the bathroom is rather small as it is built into the thick outer wall of the castle in what was the privy, over 300 years ago.
The "Walther von der Vogelweide" room is named after the most celebrated of the Middle High German poets (c. 1170 - c. 1230). It is rumored that he lived very close to Zeilitzheim. This room is spacious and has room for an additional bed, if needed.
