Weilburg Castle is beautiful and fascinating inside and out. However, to see the insides, we had to take a tour (for a few euros) which was entirely in German. The xenophobic guide was rather snooty and not inclined to indulge us with the slightest effort...More

This is a tricky one to rate. Another reviewer has referred to the difficulties they encountered as a sole traveller wanting a guided tour. I had the same experience at Homburg but the staff there were more amenable to a solution. The train arrives and...More

Excellent and peculiar castle. Only Versailles comes to mind as a rough analogy. Besides the castle, the complex includes church, orangery and park. The courtyard has chairs, there are concerts under the open sky. There is a restaurant and hotel - in fact, quite inexpensive....More

These gardens were original of the renaissance and reformed later into baroque style. Only the Linde miniforest remains now in the original baroque, but the gardens are carefully maintained, and very beautiful. We enjoyed the garden terraces outlooking into the picturesque Lahn river, the sculptures...More

Beautiful caste garden with many platforms A very tranquil place with beautifully plantations. It is worth wile to visit the gardens that are some hundred years old. You always find a shady place there.

I think I put everything in the review title. We had German friends with us so got some translations. The guide, as others already noted, is not inclined to notice foreigners. There is no literature in English at all, not even leaflets. The palace itself...More
