We remember very fondly our 5th Gourmet Journey on September 06 in the best weather.

Guest chefs Mike Süsser, Elmar Simon, Iris Bettinger, Björn Swanson, Hiroshi Sakai, Ludger Helbig, Holger Bodendorf, Rungis Express, Udo Walter, Benjamin Gallein and Marcel Elbruda and vineyards Heger, Königswingert, Kallfelz and Künstler, the Weserbergland Distillery and Die Barista had arrived in honor of the 25th star anniversary of our kitchen director Achim Schwekendiek.
With a lot of distance and spread over the whole castle as well as the castle park there were food and beverage stations from which you could get culinary delights to your reserved table. The atmosphere was great and the conversations lively. All guests felt safe and praised the event, which was excellently planned under Corona conditions.

The next Gourmet Journey will take place on September 12th 2021 .

50 Kilometer in 12 hours – „Lebensweg im Namen der Ananas“


Normally, Carina Franke and Lisa Röper welcome guests at the reception of Schlosshotel Münchhausen at Schloss Schwöbber. But what is normal in times of Corona, when we are also still closed? Especially a pity, since our castle celebrates its 450th birthday this year. Among other things, with our charity campaign “LEBENSFLASCHE”, the aluminum drinking bottles for 5 euros for the benefit of the children’s hospices Löwenherz, Bärenherz and Balthasar. However, due to the closure of the hotel, the sale of the LEBENSFLASCHEN at the reception has also come to a standstill. Carina and Lisa turned the project “LEBENSFLASCHE” into their own personal project “LEBENSWEG”. On Saturday, May 9, the two of them set out to walk 50 kilometers around our Munchausen Castle in 12 hours to raise money for the three children’s hospices.
After a fabulous 37.2 km, they were replaced by our Team 2, Maik Winzer and Torben Gebbe, at 8:00 pm after 11 hours of hiking. Our colleagues walked a total of 50.4 km for the children’s hospices and have collected over 2,500 euros in donations so far. A great achievement!
We are very proud of our dear colleagues and say thank you very much to them and all generous donors!
