The Vibe: Noble.
The Area: In Lieser, in the Moselle region known for its stunning countryside and winemaking traditions (Riesling is a particularly famous export product). One of many immersive experiences, guests can adopt a grapevine from the hotel’s own vineyard, Schloßberg, and enjoy the wine produced from it during their next stay.
The DNA: Schloss Lieser is a magnificent castle built in 1885 and painstakingly restored, the hotel offers the grandeur of a 19th century castle with all the comforts of modern day. History is embedded in the fabric of Schloss Lieser, with the castle linked to pivotal moments in both German and Dutch history. Previous owners include Clemens Freiherr von Schorlemer-Lieser, a wealthy politician who was related to the Dutch Royal Family. Over the centuries, politicians regularly gathered at the castle to discuss the future of Germany. Even the hotel’s fine-dining restaurant, Puricelli, takes its name from the Puricelli family who founded the castle. It is the heart of the hotel and a warm, a convivial space serving locally inspired dishes crafted by head chef Wolfgang Preßler. The carefully selected wine menu offers excellent wines from the Moselle region, as well as from all over the world. The Castle Bar captivates with classic leather armchairs and live music on select evenings. The hotel’s wellbeing offering includes a fitness centre, indoor pool, and spa with three Finnish saunas, infrared sauna, steam room and multiple treatment rooms.
Suite-Me-Up: Rooms and suites are individually and tastefully furnished with antique furniture and ornate chandeliers, transporting guests back to a more decadent era. The Emperor Suite is the largest suite in the hotel and is divided into a spacious living room with an open fireplace (unfortunately not usable) and various seating areas. The bay window, furnished with armchairs, is located directly above the staircase to the house and offers a magnificent view over the magnolia tree in the castle park towards the Moselle.
