Less commercialized than other Mosel castles. Very attractive with lovely views of the Mosel. Inexpensive entry fee. Some of the wooden steps in the tower would not please the U.K health and safety people.

Our favorite castle in both the Rhine and Moselle Valley. Really interesting description of each room. If you are going to do one castle in Germany this is it!

We took a tour of the castle with a guide provided by our Croisi cruise. Be prepared to do a bit of climbing. The view from the top of Alken and the Mosel was spectacular. I also climbed to the very top of the tower....More
