“Interesting place”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

A piece of history to explore.. It's better to visit in the afternoon for a more comfortable walk, early in the morning would be nice too :)

“Fun experience”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

Fun and interesting to see and explore. We did the mildly strenuous walk to the top and road the little train back down. Lots of good photo opportunities.

“Had a good time”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

The boys and us parents had a good time. Glad to learn more about this castle. There was a lot of explanation and nice to know the different historical events. I only wish there is English translation.

“The largest castle on the Rhine”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

The Rheinfels Castle in the village of St. Goar on the Rhine River is huge, and it experienced a number of battles over the centuries. It provides a fascinating look at the way castles functioned on the Rhine, enabling their owners to control river traffic and to charge lucrative tolls as well as to defend the territory. There is a wonderful view of the River valley from the battlements.
