    Ehrenfels Castle is the ruin of a hilltop castle west of Rüdesheim am Rhein halfway to Assmannshausen in the Rheingau-Taunus district in Hesse. It stands on the northeastern bank of the Rhine on the steep slope of the Rüdesheimer Berg, which includes several of the best vineyards in Germany.The 4.6-meter-thick, 20-meter-high shield wall with its two 33-meter-high corner towers, as well as remnants of the palace and a gate, have survived from the former customs castle, which is almost 600 square meters in size.Ehrenfels Castle has been part of the UNESCO World Heritage Upper Middle Rhine Valley since 2002.

    you have to hike one floor down to get to the castle ruins. We are not allowed into the castle either, but a beautiful Sleeping Beauty Castle from the outside.
