Tips

  • Jonas Wind

    The Dahner castles group consists of the rock castles Altdahn, Grafendahn and Tanstein. All three are exceptionally well restored and thus offer an authentic castle experience. Admission is free.

    Below the three castles, the castle tavern Altdahn invites you to dine and drink.

    If you plan to visit the Altdahn castles, you should definitely bring more time, because the rock castle ruins are very winding and there is a lot to discover.
    There is an excellent all-round view from the tower.
    Mostly without admission, but there is also the castle museum (with admission).

    It looks like the old walls are floating above the landscape.

    Spectacular castles, as base natural rocks are incorporated into the stairs and rooms. On top was still bricked. Half nature half "man made". Absolutely worth seeing

    The castles at Dahn are partly very large plants. You can spend a lot of time there and have great views.

    Interesting castle ruins - here you can plan to explore some time - it is various stairs and ladders to climb to really every tower and every platform to climb to enjoy a great view.

    Fascinating to build three castles on narrow space. The visit has a high experience value. From the architecture to the panoramic view of the exposed location just fantastic.

    The castle Altdahn is the ruin of a rock castle in the southern Palatinate Forest, the German part of the Wasgau (Rhineland-Palatinate). Source & more: de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burg_Altdahn The castle ruin is a highlight for young and old, here there are many angles and corners to climb and some dark chambers to explore ... ;-) Also has from the top you have a beautiful view.

    The AltDahn is composed of the three castles Alt-Dahn, Grafendahn and Tanstein. The castle group is one of the largest castles in the Palatinate.

    The Dahner castle group form three adjacent castles. For castle lovers an absolute must browse the old walls.

    The ladder to the upper tower of the castle Altdahn is not for the faint of heart. Almost vertical and a bit crooked, it goes up in two stages to the viewpoint.

    Very nice view from the various castles. From Dahn there are various climbs, from the parking lot at the guest house just follow the paved road up. There are different ways up there.

    If possible visit before 17 o'clock, then at least two castles can not be reached. Also the castle museum and the restaurant (rest day on Wednesday) closes at 17 o'clock!

    A place with an eventful history and beautiful views, but also a correspondingly large number of people.
