Hotel Burg Rabenstein


Within the time-honored walls of the castle high above the Ailsbach Valley and in the middle of Franconian Switzerland, the breath of history meets the comfort of modern times. 

Already King Ludwig I of Bavaria immortalized himself in the 19th century in the castle's illustrious guest list. Anyone who is a guest here today is immediately captivated by the inspiration and comfort of the historic rooms. 17 double rooms and suites and five single rooms in individual castle style await the guest. The crackling fireplace is a great place to take a break from everyday life.

The natural paradise with falconry and beautiful stalactite cave invites you to hike and relax. The Burgrestaurant convinces with fresh, regional products, which spoil the guest with culinary delights.
