5 stunning castle hotels in Europe

Being a continent with such a rich history, it’s no surprise that so many castles in Europe have been converted into hotels. Some have spectacular, centuries-old architectural features such as turrets and portcullis, while others have sprawling grounds that are perfect for relaxing walks.

And while these historic sites may have been in existence for aeons, their hotel incarnations are not lacking in creature comforts. Luxurious accommodations, restaurants and bars serve hearty meals and drinks, and even spas with treatments help you to unwind. Whether it’s a romantic holiday, a family trip or a once-in-a-lifetime splurge with loved ones, here are five castle hotels to check out in Europe.

1. Amberley Castle, England

Nestled behind a portcullis, Amberley Castle is 900 years old and has an old-world charm history buffs will love. During the course of its existence, it has operated as a hunting lodge and even a fortified manor house, complete with battlements and a portcullis, under the supervision of resident bishops.

The castle was converted into a hotel in 1989 and there are 19 rooms. Some feature four-poster beds and en suite whirlpool bathrooms, and every room has luxurious touches such as crisp white linen, fine furnishings and antiques, and some have original features such as fireplaces, while others have added rustic charm thanks to exposed beams.

The beautiful formal gardens cover over 5ha and are contained within the castle walls. It’s a sight to behold, with features such as medieval stonework, rose-covered arches and topiary dating from the 1920s. There’s also a golf course and a tennis court, and you can play croquet in front of the castle battlements within the grounds. The hotel is less than two hours away by car from London, plus there’s a direct train from Victoria Station that runs hourly to Amberley Station, which takes about 80 minutes. Let the hotel know you’re arriving by train and they’ll arrange for a taxi to pick you up from the station.

2. Castlehotel Schönburg, Germany

Overlooking the town of Oberwesel, Castlehotel Schönburg – less than two hours by car from Frankfurt Airport – has been operating as a hotel since 1957. Of course, the building’s history dates a lot further back to somewhere between 911 and 1166, which was around the time the Dukes of  Schönburg ruled over the town.

The castle burned down in 1689 during the nine-year Palatinate heritage war and the grounds lay in ruins for two centuries until an American of German ancestry bought it from the town in the late 19th century and restored it. The Oberwesel town council subsequently bought it back from his son in 1950 and the Hüttl family has been living it in since 1957.

The hotel and restaurant they established is now operated by the third generation. There are 27 guestrooms and no two rooms look the same. Some have four-poster beds while many have a balcony or a terrace. Relax in the fireplace room, pick a book from the library or make a trip to the prison tower – something you’ll be telling your friends about later.

Views from the terraces are not to be missed as the hotel overlooks the gorgeous Rhine Valley. If you’re getting married, stay at the honeymoon suite in a little house within the courtyard that comprises a living room, a large bathroom and a walk-in closet. Bonus: Each reservation includes breakfast as well as a four-course dinner, which changes daily.

3. Parador de Cardona, Spain

Parador de Cardona overlooks the town of Cardona and dates back to the 9th century, during which it had been the site of a fort and church. More recently, it was damaged during the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939). Following restorations, it has been operating as a hotel since 1976.

Around the property, you’ll see walls decorated with tapestries and wrought iron torch holders. There are also elements from the old times such as moats, towers and an ancient cistern for the storage of water. The medieval look extends indoors, too, as the furniture has medieval designs and Catalan antiques are found in the rooms.

There are over 50 rooms of various sizes and many have four-poster beds and woven bedspreads. Guests enjoy modern comforts in the rooms, with air-conditioning, central heating, WiFi and even a gym and sauna. Its location on a promontory means you’ll get sweeping views of the surrounding mountains and villages, too. And it’s less than two hours by car from Barcelona.

4. Castel Monastero, Italy

Believed to have been around since at least the 11th century, Castel Monastero, as its name suggests, was once a monastery. Other notable moments in its history include being conquered in 1270, and once being home to the aristocratic Chigi-Saracini family, who used it for hunting and harvesting the fruit of the vines in the area. Located in gorgeous Tuscany – about three hours by car from Rome – you’ll be surrounded by vineyards that stretch as far as the eye can see.

There are more than 70 rooms and suites, all designed Tuscan-style with elements such as terracotta flooring and wooden beams, and there are historical prints around the rooms. There’s also the secluded Villa Lavanda that sleeps up to eight. While here, you will get to sample the region’s food and wine at the hotel’s two restaurants or unwind at its spa, which offers weight loss, anti-ageing and detox programmes. Alternatively, you could just luxuriate in one of its three swimming pools or book wine tours or a hot-air balloon ride over the Chianti hills.

5. Södertuna Slott, Sweden

Outside the small town of Gnesta by Lake Frösjön sits Södertuna Slott (“castle” in Swedish), a perfect spot to unwind and enjoy the Swedish countryside or even engage in activities such as hiking, biking and canoeing.

The castle’s history dates back to the 14th century and while the main building is of medieval origin, it was updated in the 17th and 18th centuries to give it a more modern look. The manor house has been home to various Swedish families over the centuries and it was officially inaugurated as a hotel and convention centre in 1986 by Princess Christina of Sweden.

What it lacks in history, it makes up for in its gorgeous surroundings. You’ll feel like you’re in a fairy tale. Rooms are located in the castle’s wings and all guarantee views of the lake and the castle park or garden. Food is prepared with ingredients from local farms as much as possible and you’ll also enjoy freshly-baked bread from its bakery and wine from its cellar. The hotel is easily accessible from Stockholm – around 45 minutes by both car and train. If you stay here during the winter months, you might even be able to skate on the lake.

5 of the best craft beer taprooms in Europe

There was a time when the US dominated the craft beer market, but Europe has been slowly but surely bubbling up. For instance, according to global market research firm Mintel, the number of craft beer product launches in Europe increased by a whopping 178% in 2017. Get a taste of the trend at these must-visit taprooms across the region.

1. Beavertown Brewery in London

Founded in 2011, Beavertown is today undoubtedly one of London’s most successful microbreweries – so much so that Heineken bought a minority stake in the company a few years back. Try its quirkily named brews like Gamma Ray (tinged with tropical notes of mango and grapefruit) and Neck Oil (a crisp and punchy IPA) at its taproom, scheduled  to reopen on February 12 after a makeover, and with a new upstairs space with a full view of the brewery. Opens on Saturdays and Sundays.

2. Brouwerij Troost in Amsterdam

Brouwerij Troost launched in 2014 in a former monastery in Amsterdam’s De Pijp neighbourhood. The immensely popular brewery has since expanded to three other locations across the city, each with its own brewpub. The drinks menu is extensive – from light pilsners and sour fruit beers to barrel-aged barley wine – and is complemented by a range of pub grub, such as tacos and burgers.

3. Crew Republic in Munich

Munich may be home to countless traditional breweries and taverns, but it also has a thriving independent craft beer scene. A case in point is Crew Republic, a taproom in the northern suburbs that started life as a home-brewing experiment. Here, you’ll find creative tipples such as the intense, full-bodied Drunken Sailor IPA and the crisp, refreshing Easy pilsner. Tastings and tours are conducted only on Fridays.

4. Brasserie de la Goutte d’Or in Paris

Brasserie de la Goutte d’Or was the first microbrewery in Paris when it opened in the vibrant multicultural district of La Goutte d’Or in 2012. Its craft beers, which are brewed in small batches, include Château Rouge (a spicy red ale) and La Chapelle (a chai-infused wheat beer) – each named after a significant place or street in the neighbourhood.

5. The International in Zurich

While The International doesn’t produce its own beers, it brings together some of the best ales from small Swiss breweries such as Trois Dames, 523 and Storm & Anchor. In this Zurich beer bar, you’ll find a rotating selection of over 50 variants from all across the country, from amber ales to stouts; brews from the rest of Europe as well as the US are available, too.

9 things to do in Rome before the summer’s over

1. Enjoy an outdoor concert

Teatro di Marcello, an open-air theatre that dates all the way back to the 1st century, resembles a miniature Colosseum. The iconic site hosts classical and contemporary concerts throughout the year within the vaults of its ancient arcades, which make for an evocative backdrop on warm starlit evenings. Tickets include a guided walk through the archaeological site before the show. Visit the website for a schedule of Summer concerts, including a few free shows.

2. Scoot around the city

Who can forget the classic scenes from Roman Holiday where Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn zip through the city’s winding streets on a vintage Vespa? The Italian capital is ideal for exploring on two wheels, and there’s nothing more fun than soaking up the sights and sounds from the back of a scooter. Boutique travel company Scooteroma offers Vespa tours to satisfy all interests, from ancient history and food to street art and cinema. The latest addition, the “Double Street Vespa Tour”, caters towards travellers passionate about both street art and street food. The tour leads you through three neighbourhoods San Lorenzo, Testaccio and Trastevere  and stops off to enjoy things like large murals and delicious gelatos along the way.

3. Cook up a storm

Rome excels at rooftop dining, and there’s no better place to sample the city’s culinary marvels than on the private garden terrace of Marchesa Violante Guerrieri Gonzaga (or Vio for short). Join the chef on a stroll through Campo de’ Fiori’s famous market to pick up seasonal ingredients, before learning how to prepare classic Italian dishes in her stately home. You’ll get to enjoy the fruits of your labour on the rooftop terrace, while admiring 360-degree views of the city skyline.

4. Take a day trip

Located a short train ride east of Rome, the historic town of Tivoli merits a visit for its bucolic charm and noteworthy UNESCO World Heritage sites. Begin your tour at Villa Adriana, where you’ll find the ruins of Emperor Hadrian’s 2nd-century suburban Roman villa, before heading to the 16th-century Villa d’Este, which is famed for its remarkable Renaissance garden filled with numerous fountains, waterfalls and basins.

5. Sip on some vino

Learn about Lazio’s longstanding wine traditions during a visit to the nearby town of Frascati. The town produces some of the region’s most famous white wines, which are made with fragrant Malvasia and Trebbiano grapes. Savour the Frascati Superiore DOCG and sweet Cannellino di Frascati DOCG dessert wine during a vineyard tour of the family-owned Minardi Frascati Winery.

6. Get on your bike

One of the most alluring aspects about a trip to Rome is the opportunity to step back in time. Take a leisurely bike ride along the ancient cobblestones of Appia Antica (Appian Way), the oldest road in the Eternal City and the source of the adage “all roads lead to Rome”. This historic road enabled trade to flourish throughout the Roman Empire and today takes travellers past Christian catacombs, churches and archaeological ruins.

7. Admire some street art

Although most people flock to Rome for its ancient history, the modern capital has also cultivated a thriving street art scene over the last decade. The gritty Quadraro district in south-eastern Rome has become a focal point for this creative movement. Here, you’ll find the Museo di Urban Art di Roma, a community project comprising several large murals that adorn the neighbourhood’s residential buildings and public spaces.

8. Enjoy a light show

Ancient Rome comes alive each evening during the immersive light shows held at the Forum of Augustus and the Forum of Caesar in the heart of the city. Special effects are projected right onto the ruins, while the educational narrative (available in eight languages) recreates what daily life was like during the Roman Empire. Follow updates from Viaggio nei Fori for the latest schedule.

9. Visit the Pope’s summer residence

Now open to the public, the Papal Palace of Castel Gandolfo offers a fascinating glimpse into the pontiff’s power and prowess. Catch a train from the Vatican City railway station each Saturday morning to reach the palace, where you can embark on a guided walk through the Pontifical Villas and their gorgeous manicured gardens.

Please check the establishments’ respective websites for opening hours as well as booking requirements before visiting, and remember to adhere to safe-distancing measures while out and about.

The best city beaches in Europe

1. Paris Plages, Paris

Every summer, about 5,000 tonnes of sand shipped from Normandy, 550 deckchairs, 450 beach umbrellas and 50 palm trees are deposited along the banks of the River Seine in Paris to form temporary urban beaches. They’re located between Pont de Solférino and Pont Alexandre III on the left bank, and between Pont de Sully and Pont Neuf on the right bank. Along the Parc Rives de Seine on the right bank, things like tai chi sessions, dance workshops and a pop-up library have been spotted.

Unfortunately, swimming in the Seine is forbidden; however, if you’re craving a dip, head to the artificial lake of Bassin de la Villette in the 19th arrondissement, where you’ll find three specially erected swimming pools.
Free entry

2. Amager Strandpark, Copenhagen

Copenhageners have been flocking to this beach park since 1934, which was extended in 2005 with a 2km-long artificial island. Its serene northern end features sand dunes and winding paths, as well as the Helgoland baths, which comprise three saltwater pools (two single-sex and one unisex). Don’t be alarmed if you spot a bare derrière – swimwear is only mandatory in the mixed pool.

In contrast, the southern end, with its marina and broad promenade, is ideal for activities like rollerblading, sailing, kayaking and windsurfing. Kids will love splashing about in the shallow lagoons too.
Free entry

3. Blijburg aan Zee, Amsterdam

“Blij” is the Dutch word for “happy” (Blijburg aan Zee can be translated as “happy castle by the sea”), and indeed, it’s hard to be anything but merry when kicking back on this beach. Located on Amsterdam’s  IJburg, a collection of artificial islands east of the city centre, it is known for a distinctively bohemian vibe.

Days can be spent swimming, lounging on the sandy stretch or enjoying the delicious fare at the beach restaurant – they whip up dishes using organic ingredients and locally sourced vegetables. Come nightfall, the place transforms into party central, with DJ sets and campfires galore.
Free entry

4. Barceloneta, Barcelona

A mere 20-minute walk from the city centre, this is Barcelona’s most popular beach. Once the mercury hits 20ºC, you’ll find locals out here in full force – sunbathing, swimming, surfing, playing beach volleyball and enjoying tapas at the beachside restaurants.

Stroll along the beach and admire a variety of intriguing architectural structures. Frank Gehry’s gilded fish sculpture, which towers at a height of 35m and spans 56m in length, is a sight to behold with its stainless steel scales shimmering in the sun.
Free entry

5. The Fulham Beach Club, London

Much like Peter’s Pan’s Neverland, London’s urban beach club is all about celebrating your inner child. The Fullham Beach Club opens in May 2022 on the banks of the River Thames in Fulham. The place is decked out like a pastel-coloured dream with fairy lights, cabanas and beach huts. There’s a full line-up of events too, including beach yoga, glitter art and sand-sculpting events, table tennis, croquet and even fancy-dress parties. Feeling peckish? Head to pop-up restaurant Jimmy Garcia’s BBQ Club, or book a spot at their bottomless bubbly brunch on Sundays.
Fees apply; until 31 August


6. Isar River, Munich

When locals yearn to escape the summer heat, they often flock to the banks of the Isar. The river, which is fed by water from the Alps, flows through the centre of Munich and offers miles of idyllic shoreline. Here, you’ll find several open grassy spaces, islets and sandy inlets where you can sunbathe, swim or picnic. Barbecues are also allowed at certain locations.

One of the most popular stretches of the Isar is the Eisbach, a small channel with an unlikely feature – a manmade wave that swells and spans the length of the brook. Here, surfers can hone their skills all year round. Surfing competitions are occasionally held too.
