We saw this castle whilst on an Avalon River Cruise. It looked lovely from the river and we wished that we had seen this before going to Koblenz rather than afterwards. Next time we will take the short taxi ride and explore the interior. It is still great to see as you glide past.

We passed this castle while on our Avalon cruise. We decided after our tour of Koblenz to go back and check this castle out. It is beautiful. Well restored. Only 5 euro to tour, only German speaking tours. About 15 minute cab ride from Koblenz city. Worth going back and taking a closer look.

We biked past here and decided to have a closer look. So glad we did because it just reeked of history. The tour guide had heaps of background detail about the castle, and I was surprised to hear that maintenance is paid for by the state government. To protect the beautiful parquet floors we had to wear special slippers over... More

Located on the outskirts of the city high above the Rhine, stands majestic Schloss Stolzenfels. Built in 1259 to collect river tolls, the castle became the summer residence of King of Prussia. You can visit the castle by walking up the steep hill.

The castle itself, grounds and the views are beautiful. The tour (5 Eur) is very brief and only in German although an English guidebook is available. The walk up to the castle is quite steep and would be challenging for people with mobility problems. There are homes in the immediate vicinity at the bottom of the hill near the road,... More

This castle is one of the few that is in almost perfect condition and restored and I damaged through history. There is a guided tour for $5 euro although it is only in German they give you an English pamphlet to read on the tour. It has many original furnishings and artifacts and is a wonderful view of history. Just... More

Quite a climb, partly steps but mainly on the road, saw a couple pushing a push chair, which must have been quite difficult. Worth the climb for the views, but didn't go into castle as only guided tours in German.

A lot of look but don't touch so not a good idea for the little ones. Tour is in German only but they have English guide books you can use along the tour.

We came here a few days ago however the actual castle was closed. It was still worth the trip as we walked around the gardens and it is all very pretty and the views are stunning.

Went here with my son (12). We cycled from Koblenz centre which took us about 40 minutes along the Rhine at leisurely pace (check out Bike Rental Zangmeister). Parked bikes at the village public car park (free) and walked up to the castle. Very pleasant albeit steep walk but all tarmac/road surface so no problem. Entrance for the 2 of... More
