    The castle was built in the 12th century and is still an impressive building today.The courtyard can be entered daily from 9am to 6pm, unless there is a closed event at the castle. The tour of the keep, "thick tower", is only possible by appointment.

    The castle Rieneck is a built around 1150 hilltop castle over the town Rieneck in the Lower Franconian Sinntal in Bavaria. Today it is the youth castle of the Association of Christian Scouts and Scouts (VCP). The castle is known for its on the European mainland unique tower chapel, which is located completely in the wall of the keep.
    Ludwig I, Count of Loon and Rieneck had the so-called castrum Rinecke built around the year 1150 on the northeastern border of the county of Rieneck, in order to secure his sphere of influence against the interests of the surrounding territories of Kurmainz, the Hochstift Würzburg and the Fulda Abbey. Due to natural obstacles, the small hill in Sinntal offered excellent conditions for this: In one direction only, the castle had to be secured by adding a moat and the least possible attack surface to this side.
