"Burg Rheinstein" is nowadays a interesting museum with a long history. There is a restaurant for visitors and if you'd like to a special experience - there two beautiful apartments which can be booked for a overnight stay.

The castle "Burg Rheinstein" is located approx. 5 kilometers (approx. 3 miles) westward of Bingen, down the river Rhine, at the south entrance of the UNESCO Cultural Heritage of the Upper Middle-Rhine Valley ("Oberes Mittelrheintal"), face to face with the village of Assmannshausen. The castle was the symbol of the castle-reconstruction period in the 19th century, the so-called Romanticism, because of its impressive location, and also its eventful history had many highlights.

This stop was the best choice of something to do during a short 3 day drive along the Rhine River. The castle was interesting and the view great. How did they cram so much living on a cliff? Don't miss the hand crafted details that could be easily overlooked. Even the wall paper isn't paper as it is all painted... More

This castle sits in the most amazing position right above the Rhine with an awesome view. There is also a lot to see and learn on the inside. Should definitely visit.

We spent a day driving up the Rhein, enjoying views of castles along the way. This one, situated across the river from the village of Assmannhausen where we were staying, is the only one that we visited. Park alongside the road and there's a steep path to walk up that would be pretty challenging for older people. We enjoyed the... More

This is one of my favorite castles. Small picturesque romantic castle. It is lovely to visit in the spring when the flowers are in full bloom but nice anytime of year.

Stopped here as part of a package tour. Our bus parked at the base of the castle. We walked up to the castle via a steep path of switchbacks that was flat and easy to climb. Some of the older folks had to take it show, but there were a few families with strollers who easily made the ascent. Once... More

You have to climb a steep ramp to get to the castle entrance as it was on top of the hill. The tour of the castle took about an hour. The castle has been modernized. I loved the views of the Rhine, and the chapel was pretty.

Great little castle with great views of the Rhine. Self-guided. Interesting to walk around. Up on a hill so a tad bit of walking up a slope. Beautiful garden. Would recommend.

A few weeks ago, I was travelling around Germany by car introducing my family to places that I`ve lived in the past. One of them was the small town of Boppard, near Koblenz, where I stayed for 8 weeks in 1986. I was keen to show them at least one of the many castles along the Rhine Valley. We stopped... More
