The Schlosshotel was built in 1886 of diorite and sandstone in a neo-gothic style. It was designed by the architect Carl Seiler who also worked for the Prince of Solms-Braunfels at his castle on from 1883. Johann Ferdinand Witkop took the hotel at rent in 1893 and finally bought it in the year of 1908. It is run as family business ever since. The hotel accomodated some famous guests such as members of the house of Hohenzollern and the young Franklin D. Roosevelt who probably is the best known: In 1891, 40 years before being elected as president of the US, he spent some time in our hotel after a health resort treatment. The hotel is full of history and charming atmosphere.
