  • Helmut Sch├Ânberger

    This is nothing historical, just a great lookout. This was never a castle, the hotel is just a hundred years old.

  • Fantastic view over W├╝rzburg.
    For many, probably the most beautiful view of the city, including the view of the fortress.

  • She towers over W├╝rzburg. It would have been nice if the additions had been made in the correct style.

  • In the 13th century, during the reign of Bishop Iring von Reinstein-Homburg (1254-1266), a Hohenlohe castle was built on the Steinberg, which was called Castrum in Lapide or Novum Castrum in Latin documents. A castle, however, which could not quite live up to the claim of a defiant fortification, as it was completely destroyed again only ten years after its construction in a civil uprising.Perhaps based on these old traditions, but above all enthusiastic about the location and the incomparable view of W├╝rzburg and the Main Valley, more than 300 years later Peter Schneider had a castle built on the former foundations according to plans by Andreas Pfannes [1]: At Pentecost In 1898 and after only nine months of construction, he opened his "Restaurant zur Steinburg" and had no idea that this gem would become a well-known castle hotel 100 years later. But the dreamer and visionary Peter Schneider, who was still pursuing many ideas for further expansion, soon lost interest in further investments after bureaucratic hurdles. Disillusioned, he sold his former dream just two years later to the wealthy wine merchant Kommerzienrat J. Wilhelm Meuschel, who from then on used it as Steinburg Castle for the representative sale and serving of his wines.
