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.
