The Burg Hotel

A family wedding brought us to this little village in Sachsen Anhalt, approximately 7km from the East German city of Magdeburg. I didn't really see too much of the village as most of the wedding celebrations were held elsewhere - This page is really about the hotel complex where most of the wedding guests stayed and which was stunning and luxurious and offering superb quality at very reasonable prices!

The hotel complex covers quite a big area and the surrounding buildings have been converted from their original use, such as the corn house and the brewery, into various types of accommodation.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Excellent hotel
  • Cons:Nothing else to see or do in Wanzleben!!
  • In a nutshell:A VERY quiet little town in the middle of nowhere!

    Wow was it once a castle? Did sexy nuns trick passing Knights by putting a fake Holy Grail image in the tower? :o)

    I love such tiny towns - must confess I have never been to Wanzleben although I only live a few miles away. That hotel really sounds wonderful.

    What a lovely castle hotel! I think the Wanzleben is also very funny.

    What a great place for a wedding! (I had never heard of it before, by the way.) Actually I think people were very short hundreds of years ago. If you look at the suits of armour in museums, most of the big hulking heroes must have been about 5'1".

    This looks like a very off the beaten-place! Very nice!

    Looks like the right place for a wedding party. It would also serve good as the weekend escape from urban environment.

    Nice page with great pics on a (to us) unknown location, Maria! Here's the link for Oberwiesenthal with pics I was looking for earlier: Erzgebirge Sports & Outdoors
