Fodor's Review

The story goes that after Sleeping Beauty had slumbered for a hundred years, the thick thorn hedge surrounding her castle suddenly burst into blossom, thereby enabling a daring prince a way in to lay a kiss upon her lips and reawaken her. Nowadays home to a handsome hotel, the stony exterior of Dornröschenschloss continues to be clad in colorful roses, and its walled garden is home to an impressive collection of the flowers. Even if you don't stay the night, a drive here

is scenic, and there are ruins as well as the garden to explore, and a pleasant outdoor terrace with views over forest-covered hills to enjoy afterward.
