July 26, 2018
At the beginning of the seventh stage you climb on already known paths from Koblenz to the knight's fall. High above the Rhine, the Rheinburgenweg takes you on good hiking trails along the slope - fantastic views are guaranteed here.The trail winds along the Rhine Valley until you finally reach the castle Stolzenfels. For hikers on the Rheinburgenweg, a visit to the castle is a must. The massive castle complex was built on the ruinous remains of the original castle and is today considered the most important building of Rhine Romanticism. The magnificent castle was built at the beginning of the 19th century on behalf of the Prussian Crown Prince. It was designed according to the idealized image of a medieval hilltop castle. The castle complex can be visited from February to November.After the detour to the castle, you will now ascend to the highest point of today's stage. Here you can find traces of a building from older times. In a clearing in the forest, the foundations of a Roman temple were uncovered. Extensive information boards explain the current state of research.From the temple of Merkur, the Rheinburgenweg meanders slowly down to your destination Rhens.
