The Schloss is an elegant early XIX-century manor house bestowing on the medieval town all the flamboyance one can find in and around Beesenstedt.
Four-storeyed 5,000m2 piece of architecture, its ground floor is given to five large halls or vestibules. Variously furnished and decorated, sharing two old fireplaces, a bar, grand piano, artworks on the walls, an exit to the winter garden and a restroom, these ample ground halls can be of use, convenience and indulgence in many different ways. The Masonic Chamber which contains a library of antique books, stockroom of artifacts, the solar (room for solitary activities) and other facilities is a limited access area requiring permission from the host to enter.
The second floor boasts a grand hall originally built as a ballroom. Restored and furnished with fidelity to the bygone era – its high ceiling adorned with elaborate stucco ornaments, three enormous crystal chandeliers in classic style illuminating the chamber, otherwise full of light flooding in through the wall of vast windows; equipped with an authentic fireplace surrounded by sofas and chairs accenting the warmest social area, the spot especially hospitable in winter time, an old Bechstein grand piano solemnly awaiting its guest maestro in the corner, and a sound system to plug in an occasional iPhone – the grand hall most comfortably holds banquets, ceremonies and other large-group lively congregations.
Adjacent to the grand hall one finds the main bar, a bay-windowed gallery stretching across the entire rear facade facing south and serving as a breakfast parlour, and two large terraces facing north, one hanging above the main entrance. Other rooms on this level are a high lobby area, sauna with an exit to the balcony, sauna lounge with a bar, bathroom with showers, industrial-type kitchen and service rooms.
