The picturesque location of the castle Rheinstein enchanted in 1823 the Prince Frederick of Prussia, who also bought the castle promptly. At that time, the castle was little more than a dilapidated ruin, but after several years of reconstruction, the Prince could move into his domicile. The castle was then built with careful preservation of the medieval fabric to a romanticized residential castle.
This form is preserved to this day and can be visited. The castle now houses a museum and an adjoining restaurant. In addition, the view from the wall and from the towers down to the Rhine Valley is simply picturesque. If you can not get enough of the castle, then you should also look at the accommodation offers.

The castle Rheinsteig can be reached via the Soonwaldsteig between Trechtingshausen and Bingen or from the Rhine. Access also between Trechtingshausen and Bingen.
The castle was rebuilt very classically in the 18th century and conveys true romantic castle feeling. The Burggarten belongs to the Weltweerbegärten of the Upper Middle Rhine Valley. Beautiful views of a great castle with a fine restoration and a well-kept beer garden. A real knight castle!
Dogs are allowed to leash on the castle. The visit is really worthwhile.
