The picturesque Weserbergland is not exactly holding back its charm. Vast fields and gentle hills determine the scenery and lure with a mystery tour. Schlosshotel Münchhausen is located amidst this beautiful natural landscape, close to the historic town of Hameln. Named after the nobleman, who converted the former estate into a castle Schwöbber in 1570, this residence is full of surprises – such as the logo of the house, it is decorated with a pineapple, not the most common of all the fruit in Lower Saxony. But it was precisely this that aroused the interest of Peter the Great. The Russian Czar was interested in the largest collection of plants in Europe at the time, and the orangery of Schloss Schwöbber with its pineapple cultivation.

Since then, centuries have passed, but the castle continues to fascinate. The beginnings of Schlosshotel Münchhausen lie more than 450 years ago. Today this masterpiece of the Weserrenaissance presents itself as a refuge, which transports the guest from the here and now into the idyllic. Hand-picked decorations as well as historic treasures throughout the property and large, light-flooded rooms invite you to relax. The history of this castle is ubiquitous and combines pure harmony with the amenities of a 5 star hotel. While walking through the eight-hectare park- the first English-style park in continental Europe - you can follow in the footsteps of the Münchhausen - marvel at rare plants or simply enjoy the escape from the hustle and bustle.

This leisure time is topped off by Michelin star chef Achim Schwekendiek treats his guests with exquisite delicacies in the intimate atmosphere of a gourmet restaurant. Golfers will feel at home in the 36 fairways of the two golf courses, and wellness enthusiasts will have their rounds in the 18-meter-long pool or relax in the 800 m² spa area.
Each and every guest can find their place in this lovingly restored and run establishment - the pineapple in the logo is the best example.


If you like excursions, you will love the area around the castle, the hilly Weserbergland offers pure driving indulgence! As well as excellent quality cycling and hiking trails, sailing on the river Weser, and many cultural attractions (German fairy tale road, Hameln, Seven Castles in Leine, and the Weserbergland).

Since Hilmar von Münchhausen converted the old mansion to a castle more than 450 years ago, many small and large cultural treasures have accumulated. They characterize the unique atmosphere of the Renaissance castle. The special charm and the flair of past centuries have been splendidly combined with luxurious details and state of the art technology.
