    First documented mention in 1213.
    Besieged and destroyed in 1282. Due to a ban on reconstruction, a new castle with a double ring wall and residential tower was only built after 1344.
    The castle had been left to decay since the 16th century and was blown up in the Palatinate War of Succession in 1689.
    The castle was given its current appearance by Baron Nikolaus von Kirsch-Puricelli, a wealthy industrialist and owner of the Rheinböllerhütte, who had a neo-Gothic residential castle built in the English style by the Regensburg architect Strebel from 1899 to 1902. Further residential buildings and a lookout tower were built on the grounds of the outer bailey. Reichenstein was the last castle in the Upper Middle Rhine Valley to be rebuilt under the sign of Rhine romanticism.
    Nowadays, the complex houses a castle museum with a large collection of historical weapons and armor as well as cast-iron take plates from the Stromberger Neuhütte and the Rheinböllerhütte, a restaurant and, since the end of 2015, a hotel. The living quarters in the castle have been preserved as they were over a hundred years ago. Weddings can still take place in the castle chapel and the old premises.More information:

    Nice view from the Soonwaldsteig to the castle Reichenstein. Part of the RheinBurgenWeg from Trechtingshausen to Bingen.
    The path is a single trail, steep and sometimes slippery. Sticks are helpful.

    Since I found two different names for the castle, I searched both Wikipedia and found that it is probably called Burg Rheinstein. The corresponding explanation can also be found here:
