A Warm Welcome to Engers Castle


Engers Castle was built as a hunting castle for the archbishop of Trier and Elector Johann Philipp von Walderdorff in 1760. Following a tumultuous history and comprehensive renovation, it was reopened as the „Academy for Chamber Music“ of the state foundation „Villa Musica Rhineland-Palatinate“ in 1995. The castle has been the property of the foundation since 1999. Villa Musica Rhineland-Palatinate promotes gifted, young musicians with special training in the area of chamber music. There are rehearsals with subsequent concerts in the castle the whole year. The chamber concerts in the Hall of Diana are among the most beautiful in the culture program of the state of Rhineland-Palatinate.



The „Hotel-Restaurant Schloss Engers“ is a

modern gastronomic operation in the historic ambience of the castle. It provides many and varied possibilities to use the special ambience and the refined baroque furnishings of Engers Castle for celebrations, parties and other events. Rooms of various sizes and facilities are available from a restaurant in the baroque vaulted cellar to the garden hall on the ground floor and all the way to the guest rooms in the attic. The building is furnished for meetings and has approximately 40 rooms for overnight stays in its own guest house. The magnificent rooms of the castle are ideally suited to family celebrations, especially wedding receptions, because they also function as a branch office of the Neuwied registry office for civil weddings.
