During the Middle Ages, Schloss Bürresheim palace was actually a castle, in other words, a knight’s residence and a fortress at the same time.

During the Middle Ages, Schloss Bürresheim palace was actually a castle, in other words, a knight’s residence and a fortress at the same time. Even so, the name “Schloss”, or “palace”, is certainly appropriate, since the magnificent interior design of this Rhenish residential castle leaves visitors dreaming of eras gone by and Snow White. All the generations of residents have contributed a large amount of furniture and numerous paintings, as well as other furnishings.
At the same time, Schloss Bürresheim, incidentally like all castles, consists not only of a single building, but of a keep, many walls, gates, towers and passages, as well as a great hall and, in addition, an excellently preserved guildhall from the 17th century. Over the course of its varied history, the palace has repeatedly been added to and converted. After the last residents transferred ownership of the palace to the federal state of Rhineland-Palatinate, extensive renovation measures were conducted, which also included the restoration of the original Baroque gardens.
