Rheinfels broods over the river majestically. The ruin is large and takes a while to walk around and appreciate what it used to look like. There is a nice museum here and several restaurants, though I was a little disappointed that the really nice terrace...More

It is a long way up to the castle from town, but the views are worth it. We were there towards the end of the day, so we did not explore all the tunnels. But what we saw, we really liked.

Stopped here based on the RS writeup and TA reviews. Think we were expecting too much so left a little disappointed. As long as your expectations are right, this is probably worthwhile. Nice views of Rhine and surrounding hills.

This castle is unique in that the extensive network of tunnels below the castle is largely open to the public. Would recommend only for very small groups of children. Fairly easy to hike to from the town. Commanding view of the town and Rhine -...More

We visited a good amount of castles in Germany and this was definitely our favourite one. We loved that we were able to wander around at our own pace and make discoveries without the help of a tour guide. There are big main caverns, hidden...More
