NIGHT OF PASSION is one of the more unusual events we’ve visited recently – a party in a real medieval castle in the Bavarian foothills.

Though less than an hour’s drive from Munich airport, it manages to create the feeling that it’s happening in a separate little world of its own.

Organisers Rene and Jacqueline of Xklusiv Events have gone to a lot of trouble to ensure their nights attract the right mix of people, limiting the number of guests to 500, mainly made up of couples and their add-ons. This means the event is busy but never crowded, and friendly and action oriented without being a meat market.

The castle has been renovated as a modern hotel, but without losing that important feeling of old stone. There’s a cosy restaurant, a bar/disco area lots of chill?out rooms, and a photo-gallery. Last but not least, there are plenty of atmospheric vaulted cellars and turrets reached by spiral stairways perfect for damsel in distress fantasies!

By the time Rene and crew have finished, the whole place is dotted with large bits of SM equipment. The party has the run of the entire building and the staff seem completely unfazed by what surely must be their most unusual guests!
Guests arrive from midday and doors close at 10pm, ensuring that the party is swinging well before midnight. The entrance fee of DM 100 (about £ 35) includes a truly sumptuous buffet which is available from 8pm, meaning that you can eat your fill, then go up ,to your room to change – luxury! The public action goes on until five or six in the morning, when everyone retires to the privacy of their rooms.

In the morning there’s an equally impressive buffet breakfast that lasts long enough to allow everyone to surface at a civilized time.

Rooms in the hotel are a snip at DM 170 (about £ 60), and being able to bring your bedroom to the party has myriad advantages. Overspill accommodation is available nearby.

The next Night Of Passion will be on March 3 in a medieval castle on the Rhine, Then a weekend party in a schloss near Dresden, May 11-13 and more parties in Autumn, dates tbc.

Highly recommended!
