Don't expect lots to do here but there is a movie room, a small exhibition, lots of information on the fortress and it's inhabitants (and prisoners such as Richard the Lionheart) and a picnic area. The view, however, is absolutely breathtaking and well worth the...More

On my trip to retrace some childhood steps (and memories) we went to Rhineland-Palatinate where I spent several summer vacations 40 years prior. One of my oldest memories was me visiting Trifels castle with my parents. So for old times’ sake I revisited the place....More

Nice brisk walk to the castle. Even though it will not open till late February the scenery was breathtaking and the photos endless. A great day to spend with my husband and get out and enjoy sunshine

An interesting castle where Richard the Lionheart was once held. More than half was rebuilt and added in the 19th and 20th century, but very much in style of the original. From the top you have a magnificent view of the surroundings and in one...More
