Burg Rheinstein Oct 13, 2012
Burg Rheinstein is located near the town of Trechtingshausen, Germany. We stopped there during our road trip along the Rhine. As we were there in October, we practically had the place to ourselves. It was quiet, clean and peaceful.

To get inside you have to follow a short, but somewhat steep pathway that zigzags its way to the top so that might be a problem for some. Once in the castle there are stairs to get to upper levels where you will find great views of the Rhine River as well as furnished rooms featuring armor, hunting trophies, ironwork, artwork and some lovely windows.

The castle has a working drawbridge, beautiful gardens and the (spooky) coffins of Princess Luise, Prince Georg and Prince Friedrich of Prussia. I’ve seen conflicting information about the coffins so I can’t be certain I have their names and titles right.

There is a gift shop, café and public bathrooms available.

Apparently it is possible to hold your wedding ceremony there which I think would be incredibly romantic.

Burg Rheinstein - (Castle) Jul 25, 2011
Rheinstein Castle is located opposite to Assmannshausen on a steep rock. It is one of the most important examples of romantic castle reconstruction. As a masterpiece of the architect Johann Claudius of Lassaulx the castle was built in the beginning of the 14th Century. It was a princely summer residence.

In 1975 the opera singer Hermann Hecher bought the castle. It's due to him that Rheinstein Castle became again one of the centres of attraction in the Rhine Valley. Around the apartment tower from the 14th Century you find neo-Gothic sets, turrets, terraces and iron stairs.
