All reviews rhine river own pace grape vines wander around surrounding countryside favorite room gift shop is sweeping views tour guide limited parking open to the public great tour steep hill middle ages worth every step parking lot castle
It's a good yomp up the valley side to this castle, but well worth it for the views of the Rhine far below and to enjoy the well kept castle.
Plenty of opportunities to spook the kids with stories of vampires and discontented ghosts thanks...More
We had to choose between this and Reichstein due to time. We LOVED this place. Small-ish (is that fair even though its a castle?) but lots of access. It was beautiful and done very nicely.
We ate at the cafe there and it was also...More

Thank you very much for this review! We're happy to hear that you felt comfortable and had a good time at our castle. Kind regards, Hecher Family, Rheinstein Castle
The view of the Rhine River and the surrounding countryside is well worth the walk up the hill. Limited parking along the road with a steep hill climb. Incredible view and the historic castle was beautiful. The family has done a good job of working...More
My husband and I rented a car and drove up the Rhine, stopping here for a castle visit. It is a lovely smaller castle with a stunning view. It is well kept and we were able to have an a English map and guide book....More
Very fun castle to visit. We toured a number of castles and towns on our trip down the Rhine and this one was a lot of fun. From the ancient grapevine in the center garden, to climbing up to the top towers to look over...More

We took the ferry from Ruedesheim am Rhein and landed to the Rheinstein Casle. The casle is not so large in m2 but has several floors to visit, and each floor has many rooms, modeled with original furniture and scenes. It is definately worth the...More
Rheinstein castle was erected around 1316 by order of the archbishop of Mainz. Decayed over time its ruins were purchased by prince Frederick of Prussia who had the edifice rebuilt from 1825 onward.
Today the stronghold can be discovered with the help of guidebook. Schedule...More
This is a great tour of an authentic castle. The rooms are still set up in period specific decor. We found out you can actually spend the night on premises at an updated Home. We had breakfast in the cafe, which is all run by...More
This castle is almost fully restored and wonderful to visit. The walk up from the parking lot is a bit rough though. The castle is not too big or small with a crypt and chapel. The restaurant has wonderful views of the Rhine with little...More
We visited loads of castles along the Rhein and this tops the list. I recommend the cheap guidebook in English and then you can wander yourself. Really complete and you can see a fair bit of it too. Open on Monday, when many are closed...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.
