    Die gesamte Stadtmauer von Bacharach ist heute erhalten geblieben. Wenn du hier durch das Steeger Tor trittst, ist es beinahe wie eine Zeitreise zurück ins Mittelalter: In der beschaulichen Altstadt reihen sich in den Gassen idyllische Fachwerkhäuser aneinander.

    The Malerwinkel is a very beautiful part of the old town of Bacharach.

    Definitely make a detour there if you are in the area.
    From the castle you have a very nice view of the Rhine valley.
    The castle itself has been restored and includes a very good youth hostel.

    The wooden gate (Steegertor) at the western corner of the fortification has kept its original roof and the old half-timbered construction. To the south you can see a remnant of the originally wooden roof of the battlement.

    Stahleck Castle can be found in Bacherach (near Rheinböllen), defiantly guarding the Rhine Valley. A youth hostel is housed in the castle, which is ideal for excursions in the area.
    The castle is mentioned for the first time as a fiefdom of the Archbishop of Cologne in 1136. In 1194 the warring houses of the Guelphs and Hohenstaufen were reconciled through a marriage.
    The castle was destroyed in 1666 and 1689. In 1926 it was rebuilt according to old plans. Today a youth hostel is located in the castle.
    In the village of Bacherach there are other preserved buildings, for example the old city wall with 9 preserved towers. Half-timbered houses from the 14th to 19th centuries round off the old and beautiful townscape.
    There are parking spaces above the castle. From here a somewhat bumpy path goes to the lookout point and then on to the castle.
    The castle buildings can be viewed from the outside. The inner courtyard is also freely accessible.
