Tips

  • Sebastian Kowalke

    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.

    You can find all information about opening times and entrance fees at burg-rheinstein.de.

    Well-preserved castle above the Rhine Valley. Unfortunately, even if you just want to eat or for a snack in the restaurant that is otherwise inaccessible within the castle grounds, in addition a steep admission required (5 euros per person!)

    Rheinstein Castle, which was made very visitor-friendly. You screw your way through the building and the rooms via a number of stairs and also get to the top of the tower. Very nice, you should actually spend 2-3 hours there.

    Rheinstein Castle has been part of the Upper Middle Rhine Valley UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2002. Built 1316/17.

    The Rheinsteig castle 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 a true romantic castle feeling. The castle garden is one of the world vineyards in the Upper Middle Rhine Valley. Nice views from a great castle with a fine restoration and well-tended beer garden. A real knight's castle!
    Dogs are allowed into the castle on a leash. The visit is really worth it.

    We should pay admission here to get the kids ice cream. I found a little outrageous. But otherwise a very nice castle. And if you want to visit the castle, you should pay admission. ;-)
