It was a fun day exploring all the tunnels and towers without having to pay or having to have a guide. Interesting view of the past with beautiful river views. Amusing to see the huge slugs on the tunnel walls!!!

Very interesting castle ruins along the Rhine river cruise route located just above the pretty town of St. Goar. You can pay for a taxi or tram to take you up to the castle or simply walk. We find that walking is much more interesting...More

We are arriving on a Sunday. The tourist information office will be closed. Are there lockers or is there anywhere to safely store our carry on bags while we tour the castle?
