Oestrich-Winkel, Germany

Architecture

Surrounded by forest and vineyards, Vollrads Castle lies in the middle of Germany’s beautiful Rheingau region in the federal state of Hesse. Apart from the historical castle itself, the vineyard, restaurant
and a broad range of events go to make Vollrads Castle an extremely popular sightseeing destination.

The vineyard at Vollrads Castle is one of the world’s oldest and documentary proof exists that wine was traded here as early as 1211. Nowadays, the Vollrads winery concentrates solely on the cultivation of Riesling vines over an area of some 80 hectares.

Almost the entire outdoor and façade lighting, including the castle’s emblematic and imposing tower, features energy-efficient LED modules and drivers made by Vossloh-Schwabe.
