Schloss Egg

Bernried, BY, Germany
29 Kudos
While visiting Deggendorf, my cousin took me to Schloss Egg for a half-day trip. This castle is located in the city of Bernried, just 10 minutes away by car from Deggendorf but roughly 30 minutes by bus. It really is a hidden gem because not many people make their way down to this part of Bavaria. The castle was built in the 11th century and remarkably well preserved. They do have quarters here in which you can spend the night as well as a restaurant. When we visited, there was a wedding going, which is actually very common. It is an unbelievable place to have a wedding. Tours are offered but when I visited, they were not conducted them in English. My cousin told us to go on the German tour and it seemed that the guide was quite funny because everyone was laughing at some of the things he said. I won't lie, I went along with it and pretended to laugh as well just so I could fit in hehe.
