Schloss Burgbrohl

Schloss Burgbrohl


The history
First documented mentions in 1093 by Count Palatine Heinrich, in connection with the Maria Laach Abbey Foundation.

In 1689 the castle was destroyed by fire by the French troops and rebuilt in 1709/10.

Ferdinand von Bourscheid moved the rock mound with lining walls at the beginning of the 19th century, which made the wonderful parks and gardens possible. As a result, the castle changed hands several times and was used as a monastery by an order of men until the 1960s.
In 1985 the Austrian artist Gottfried Helnwein acquired the property and began restoring the palace and the gardens according to old plans. He lived and works here with his family and sold Burgbrohl Castle in 2006 to a Viennese businessman.

In 2009 the businessman Andreas Weber bought the property. The palace terrace was completely redesigned and laid out in 2010. It has been so well received by guests that it is constantly being developed and expanded. With a varied menu and the rustic, cozy atmosphere, it has become a permanent establishment for young and old, where families, hikers and cyclists like to meet.

In 2018, the entrepreneurial family Heuft with Alexandra Heuft and Bastian Heuft acquired the castle hotel in order to strengthen the regional location and combine tradition with modernity, regionality with globality.

The location:
The palace complex is located on a hill in one of the romantic side valleys of the Rhine, from where you can see the village of Burgbrohl.

Tuffsteinzentrum Weibern

If you would like to learn more about tuff, you can find out more about this rock and its possible uses here in the "Weiberner Schaufenster" on the left. The path up to the right also takes you in just a few minutes to the open-air exhibition at the stone saw house, where, among other things, a stone saw and a crane clearly illustrate the work processes involved in the tuff stone. The tourist information offers regular guided tours to the impressive Weiberner tuff quarries and - like the local stone cutters' association - organizes hands-on stone hammering courses, in which individual works of art are created from volcanic rock.

Gleitfalte am Dachsbusch

The mining of volcanic material on the Dachsbusch ate deeper and deeper into the old cinder cone. It gives us an insight into the volcanic and climatic history. The volcanic layers show how they slipped during a cold period about 150,000 years ago due to the alternation of thawing and freezing. The badger bush does not need to fear further depletion, as the area is now a nature reserve. Follow the signposted path to the right up to the gliding fold, where you will find more information.
