Schloss Mönchstein Review
With gorgeous gardens and hiking trails, it's little wonder the 19th-century naturalist Alexander von Humboldt called this retreat outside the city a "small piece of paradise." Catherine of Russia and the Duchess of Liechtenstein are just two of the notables who have stayed in the gable-roofed, tower-studded mansion. Inside, a series of lovely rooms are hung with tapestries and adorned with painted chests and old-master daubs. The wedding chapel is particularly popular with American and Japanese couples. Dining in the Gothic Saloon or the Orangerie Apollo create an outstanding atmosphere. Getting to town means a taxi, unless you're willing to negotiate stairs or take the nearby Mönchsberg elevator, which is about an eight-minute walk away. Pros: luxurious rooms; lovely views; feels far from the city. Cons: o utside the city center; need a car to get around.
