    1 pitch

A park-like complex includes the bishop's castle Burgliebenau, located on an old arm of the Weißen Elster. Our family is restoring and reviving this castle complex from 1186 with small cultural events.

Important information

attachment
The parking space is located directly in the forest below the castle complex.

pitches
There are many large trees on level meadows, but there are also sunny spots.

The sanitary facilities
Two outdoor shower cabins with only cold water are available as showers. A bathing lake is 1 km away. Toilets are available in the house.

Furnishing
If required, short-term WiFi access can be provided in the house. Electricity is available outside.

activities
We are happy to offer an entertaining guided tour through the history of the castle for a small fee. The Wallendorder lake offers a wonderful swimming opportunity.

a notice
The freight airport Leipzig is not far away and there is frequent air traffic at irregular times. However, we have found that not everyone is bothered by it.
Since we are renovating the castle over many years, it may happen that we also carry out work near the parking spaces between 9:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.

A very nice place right next to the castle.
We had a lovely time.

How was the contact with the host?
The hosts are very nice and helpful. All respect for the overall performance of our hosts in rebuilding the castle in parts in accordance with the monument. Also many thanks for the guided tour through the old walls ;-)

Tips for new guests?
In cool & bad weather it might not be so nice, we were lucky :-)

Great, special pitch on the walls of an old castle in a beautiful garden. Close to the lake, the cities of Halle and Leipzig, with a very friendly family who are reviving the old building on their own. Anyone who likes to spend the night in a quiet, special and connected way has found their perfect place here.

How was the contact with the host?
Very reliable, nice contact. Open, friendly and just the right balance between contact and freedom.

Tips for new guests?
Matthias is a historian by profession, profession and with passion. If you are interested in history, you shouldn't miss out on having him show you around the castle. With a little advance notice, he also offers Dinner & Whiskey Tasting.

Tell us about your experience
When we arrived, you could tell right away what a charm the castle exudes. The pitches are in the garden - a power connection and sanitary facilities are available in the house. It is definitely worthwhile to examine the castle and possibly take a tour with the hosts. All in all it was a nice and quiet night, since the garden is also directly adjacent to the forest.

How was the contact with the host?
Dagny and her husband welcomed us very nicely and courteously, told us about the history of the castle and showed us some of the rooms. Thank you for the nice conversations!

On the way through, we spent one night in the tranquil Burgliebenau. The garden and the courtyard are very spacious and wonderfully atmospheric. Our boys were allowed to play in the huge sandpit and had fun with the porch swing and the prepared animals indoors. The Prasse family is lovingly renovating the castle. Super clean toilets in the castle and a fun outdoor shower are available. There is only cold water, but there is a shower curtain and a shelf.

How was the contact with the host?
Very friendly family. We were warned that there are currently an extremely large number of mosquitos on site, so that we could stock up on our car supplies. Unfortunately, a tour was not possible due to roofing work, but we were able to purchase a small guide and our curious questions were all answered.

We had a wonderful stay with the Prasse family. Everyone was very nice and helpful. The castle is an absolute highlight. We had the idyllic garden to ourselves and could enjoy the peace and quiet. There is a lake very close by, which we explored with our dogs and bicycles. There are some swimming areas. We looked for a secluded little bay so that the dogs could go into the water without a leash. The planes and the work on the castle during the day didn't bother us, the people were all very friendly and since we were still out during the day we hardly noticed anything. Thank you for your hospitality. Until next time. Jana & Julius
