Hotel Burg Rabenstein


Behind the ancient castle walls, high above the Ahorn valley and in the heart of Franconian Switzerland, a whisper from the past encounters the comforts of the present.

In the 19th century, even King Ludwig I of Bavaria was immortalized in the castle's guest book. All of our guests are immediately captivated by the inspiration and comfort of the historic rooms. Stylish hotel rooms and suites with exquisite furnishings, stimulating conversations by the fireside and a break from everyday life in a magnificent landscape - welcome to Rabenstein Castle.

Just a few steps away...
Explore the more than 150-acre natural paradise of Rabenstein Castle with"Sophie's Cave", one of the most beautiful stalactite caves in Germany, a falconry, a castle tavern, a beer garden and, last but not least, miles of forest and hiking trails.
