“Fantastic castle ruins for wandering”

Burgruine Hardenburg
Attraction details
Reviewed 14 July 2013

Although the Hardenburg Castle is a bit hard to find, it's well worth the effort. It's a great compliment to the more recent and better known castles, this one is over 1,000 years old. It's way cool with a lot to see. We parked at a lot along the main road in the village just down the hill from the castle. Loot for a small side street to walk up the trail to the entrance. Admission is only 3 euros.

One of the most beautiful castle we had visited so far, beautifully maintained, partly restored and will soon get an additional construction in the same "style" with stories and museum
Entrance cost was 3 Euro, but worth it!

I had the good fortune to spend a week rambling around the Rhineland-Palatinate and Hardenburg was by far my favorite structure amongst the burgs, schloss and burgruine. Because it is a ruin, you get to tour at your own pace without a non-English speaking tour guide hurrying you along. You will see massive medieval towers, the king's bedroom with it's hidden royal safe, the bakery and adjacent baths, the more recent gun turret additions, the queens rooms, the courtyard, the king's midnight toilet, cross groin vaults, stone stairs leading up forever, multiple spiral stair cases, massively thick walls, amazing high tower view, fake cannonballs sticking out of the tower walls to intimidate would-be attackers, and much more. Do you love castles, hidden staircases and tiny stone corridors? Then you will love Hardenburg. I spent hours there roaming from room to room, up and down stairs and back again. I did not catch sight of the ghost of the White Lady, but maybe you will. Part of the castle was closed for construction where they are building a museum to be opened summer 2012. I want to go back. Big thanks to the castle staff who were so friendly and knowledgeable.
