Overview
More
"Burg Rheinstein" is nowadays a interesting museum with a long history. There is a restaurant for visitors and if you'd like to a special experience - there two beautiful apartments which can be booked for a overnight stay. The castle "Burg Rheinstein" is located approx. 5 kilometers (approx. 3 miles) westward of Bingen, down the river Rhine, at the south entrance of the UNESCO Cultural Heritage of the Upper Middle-Rhine Valley ("Oberes Mittelrheintal"), face to face with the village of Assmannshausen. The castle was the symbol of the castle-reconstruction period in the 19th century, the so-called Romanticism, because of its impressive location, and also its eventful history had many highlights.

The castle is nestled on a rocky outcrop, some of which is tied in place to prevent accidental rock slides. A walk through this castle makes you appreciate the modern conveniences we have today. It is quite a climb up to the castle, but the...More

This is a castle that is relatively easy to get to by car, and while parking along the road can be tight at best, it does get you to within easy walking distance. This is an easy castle to explore without a guide or a...More

Absolutely not! Situated on a rocky ridge, Burg Rheinstein rises approximately 270 feet above the Rhine River in the Loreley Valley, and it is almost a climb, not a stroll! You'll be dragging the stroller not pushing it.
