Lede Castle

Bonn, Germany

Burg Lede in Bonn-Vilich, the oldest part of Bonn, is a real gem. The origins of the site goes back to the 14th century. Von Loë family still lives in the castle. The personal atmosphere of the castle with its salons, the library, the castle kitchen and the small courtyard create an unusual ambiance for events ranging from weddings, official business events to a private cookery course with friends. A limited number of register office weddings are permitted at the castle.

The grounds with groups of trees that are hundreds of years old, generous lawns with hidden clearings, enchanted terraces, historic walls and modern art in the Peristyle sculpture gallery offer a fascinating backdrop.

In the castle cellar the wine shop run by Ferdinand Freiherr von Loë stores his personally selected wines from Italian, French and German vineyards. Depending on the number of people attending, the wine tastings are held in the various rooms of the castle, which Ferdinand von Loë is able to celebrate with the knowledge of a connoisseur; they are amusing and informal.

Wir waren dort zu einer abendlichen Veranstaltung. Da war es schon dunkel. Somit haben wir wenig gesehen

Wunderschöner Ort! Gerade jetzt im Herbst! Sind zufällig vorbeigekommen und hätten es von der Straße aus fast nicht entdeckt. Ein echtes Kleinod... Wer in der Gegend ist sollte sich die paar Minuten gönnen, einen kleinen Blick werfen. Und das alles quasi mitten in der Stadt. Schön das hier so hervorragend gepflegt wird!

Schöner Ort, aber leider in Privatbesitz und deswegen leider nicht öffentlich zugänglich...

Die Burg ist sehr schön gelegen und als Veranstaltungsraum gut geeignet.

Nice budget place for events, but needs better service and attention to detail.

Wieskirche

The Pilgrimage Church of Wies (Wieskirche) is an oval rococo church, designed in the late 1740s by Dominikus Zimmermann. It is located in the foothills of the Alps in the municipality of Steingaden.

The sanctuary of Wies is a pilgrimage church extraordinarily well-preserved in the beautiful setting of an Alpine valley, and is a perfect masterpiece of Rococo art and creative genius, as well as an exceptional testimony to a civilization that has disappeared.

The hamlet of Wies, in 1738, is said to have been the setting of a miracle in which tears were seen on a simple wooden figure of Christ mounted on a column that was no longer venerated by the Premonstratensian monks of the Abbey. A wooden chapel constructed in the fields housed the miraculous statue for some time. However, pilgrims from Germany, Austria, Bohemia, and even Italy became so numerous that the Abbot of the Premonstratensians of Steingaden decided to construct a splendid sanctuary.
