    Review by Kerstin Wennberg from Sweden

    CONS Cons: The lack of protein in the vegetarian diet. I had expected more local, organic and fresh food, those expectations were not met. At times there was a language barrier and often a harsh tone of voice that I didn't appreciate. Lack of constructive conflict solving.

    PROS Pros: Beautiful and peaceful nature surroundings. I appreciated to start every day with an activity. You shouldn't expect just yoga and meditation though, it alternates between that, singing, dancing, walking etc. Calm rooms and quiet nights.

    Review by Dahne Vanderheyden from Belgium

    Onbeschrijfelijke ervaring!

    PROS Pros: Het opent je ogen, van alle kanten. Mijn vooroordeel, verwachtingen, het ideaal beeld dat we in onze verwachting scheppen en willen dan eigenlijk belogen worden met hoe het hoort, alles perfect volgens programma, clean, betutteld worden,.. Dit is zo veel beter dan dat alles, het is echt , het is puur, de vrijheid en rust om tot jezelf te komen , zelf beslissingen nemen, geconfronteerd te worden met jezelf .Iedere ochtend yoga.. ik ga niets verklappen, het is echt niet wat je verwacht, elke ochtend een verrassing ,en zo in (echt ongelofelijk) 1 week tijd mijn kracht, zelfvertrouwen, nieuwe inzichten...

    "I see this place as a great chance to find some more parts of the puzzle of life and putting some others (you´ve found before) into the right place.I can´t put in words what are the driving forces here to make a change in yourself.I could talk about yoga or meditation, bit many places offer this.I could talk about the Crystal Bed, which had strong effects on me. Or I could talk about the people here, but all this could not describe the whole experience, so I leave if for now. So if you feel the call to work on yourself to lead your life into a good way this place can give you some decent help, if you are even so willing to give help yourself."

    "I stayed at the castle for five days and I can truly say that it's a perfect place to unwind and recharge your batteries. It's ideal for single travelers and can easily be reached by train (Halle) and then by bus (which takes 50 minutes). You can take lovely walks directly from the castle, and don't worry you cannot get lost, they'll all lead back to the castle, or rent a bike and ride to Süßer See, take a swim, and ride back through vineyards where you may taste locally grown wine. You can just spend a couple of hours in the garden, reading, dozing, or listening to a myriad of bird voices. The castle owners and their international helpers may suggest things to do, such as yoga with Ingrid or a trip to Halle with its varied cultural offers, it's definitely worth a visit. The rooms are really royal, each one being furnished differently. They are spacious and you'll sleep like a log. Last but not least, treat yourself to a couple of minutes on the crystal bed, it's not expensive. I did not feel an instant effect, however. Having arrived back home, I feel more energetic and active, so I presume, it did a very good job on me."

    "What a beautiful place! The castle has an exceptional atmosphere. I am impressed how Ingrid and Jim, the owners, run this place. They've managed to refurbish the castle. They're working with volunteers. Ingrid is also a healer and therapist. Both are very nice friendly and caring hosts. I loved the vegetarian buffet for the breakfast, all different types of cheese, fresh fruit, homemade marmalade. Plus, the view out of the breakfast area to the garden is just picturesque. One doesn't want to really leave. "

    "This is not a regular hotel, this place has unique, peaceful, and charming atmosphere!"

    "Vom 18.-21.08.16 verbrachte ich einige Tage auf Schloss Schochwitz, um Yoga, Zumba und Meditation zu praktizieren. Alle Mitarbeiter/-innen waren sehr und erfolgreich bemüht, den Aufenthalt so angenehm wie möglich zu gestalten. Tatsächlich gelingt es einem an diesem Ort, sich eine Weile von der Außenwelt zu verabschieden, einfach "abzutauchen". "

    "Für alle, die spirituell offen sind und schon gewisse Vorkenntnisse in Körperarbeit mitbringen, ist ein Wochenende auf Schloss Schochwitz zu empfehlen!"
