Castle Schöneck was built by the well-known Munich architect Gabriel von Seidl, who also designed a lot of famous buildings, e.g. the German Museum, the Bavarian National Museum, the Lerbach Castle in Bensberg and many others.

Not only the German Empress Viktoria but also numerous members of the noble House of Bismarck resided at this unique estate with its generous proportions and its collection of valuable masterpieces of interior design.

After having entered the prestigious grand entrance hall with an open fireplace you will find diverse top-class premises - e.g. the masterful „Herrenzimmer“ (study) with its walls embellished by Otto Hupp in 1894. The spacious living area - a former ballroom in which the German Empress Victoria herself danced - is outstandingly impressive with its open fireplace, gallery and unique ceiling embellishments. From the living area and via a generously dimensioned terrace you reach the 1.500 sqm castle garden.

A high professional kitchen with lofty vaulted ceiling, cooking island and a wine cabinet makes the hearts of gourmets beat faster.

The light-flooded bedrooms offer splendid views of the castle garden. The master- bathroom captivates due to contemporary, functional design (e.g. Philippe Starck) with rainforest shower and round bath tub.

All in all this stately ground level residence seems more like a one-of-a-kind villa.

    O mah gawd. This is so stunning!
    Gotta love that shower!
    But…is that the toilet…right there? I’m not sure I wanna see someone sitting on the throne while I’m enjoying my luxury shower. I guess a gem-encrusted shower curtain would solve that!

    It’s Lottery ticket time. Love this palace.

    Gorgeous!! I must say, that shower looks a little complicated and intimidating. 😀

      Lol, that’s what I was thinking. I’d prob spend more time just trying to figure out which handles to turn & how to set the nozzles/showerheads, than I would actually showering!

    Completely smitten. Adore it, and although I don’t care for the ultra mod kitchen and baths I guess I could learn to live with them, LOL.

    Empress Viktoria built her home outside of Frankfurt, after the Emporer died. It is a lovely place to have tea or dinner. Kronberg is one of the wealthiest communities in Germany. While the home is a hotel, I believe the property is still owned by the family. Definitely worth a visit. https://schlosshotel-kronberg.com/

      Whoa! Just your average, everyday Empress house. When she went to visit the listed “castle”, she must have felt like she was “slumming it”.

    Just WOW! Although, it would be complicated, I would love that car wash of a shower!

    Spectacular. Wonder how large of a staff is necessary to keep this going? And are there staff quarters?

    To me, it looks a little strange to see every day, ordinary people furniture in such an opulent setting. It gives me hope for us little people. In the meantime let us “eat cake”! ?

    “Makes the hearts of goumets beat faster.” Snortworthy. For my 3 mil, give me a perfectly restored Boho Bungalow in Delmar with flourishing lavender hedges and a small, heated, naturalized pool. Got any of those?
