Nice castle
Apr. 2021 • Couples
I was there for several hours with my bf. We walked there and enjoyed the beautiful view and took several pics. I suggest the place to spend some hours of your day there

An incredible ruin
Jul. 2020
We loved visiting this castle. It's in ruins, but you can climb all over and explore in a way that you couldn't in most castles. Wear good shoes to take advantage. Also, the view is spectacular.

There is a shuttle from the town, but it was very difficult to find.

Great views and old rocks (Covid times)
Aug. 2020
Fantastic views from all sides, interesting small museum (must wear face masks) small shop.

Car parking nearby.

Ground underfoot is uneven and flat shoes are recommended (Not flip-flops). Our visit took about 40 minutes we did not do the guided tour

Great view, large ruins
Aug. 2020
Like most of the Rhine castles, the views are really excellent. The large castle reigns the small town of Sankt Goar and the wine hills around, opposing other castles on the other side. You can visit on your own with the help of a leaflet or take a tour. However, the ruins are not really that interesting, only very impressive. The most interesting part is the place on top of the hill, the views from there and its history. There is a parking place, but it is not very hard to walk from the village.

One of the many castles to enjoy along the Rhine. Sankt Goar is one of my favorites as well. Good restaurants, shopping and relaxing

Interesting, but closed for winter
Nov. 2019 • Couples
Just be aware that it is closed for the winter. My husband and I got there and were bummed to find this out, but there just so happened to be a local guide about to start a tour, so we tagged along. The entire tour was in German (which we don’t speak), but it was good anyway. If the guide was not there, there would have been no way to get inside the castle walls. The castle is huge, one of the biggest I have visited and had lots of spaces to check out. I think this is worth a visit.

Well worth the views
Nov. 2019
A nice walk up the hill and beautiful views but the castle is a ruin so not for bad weather.. If you don't want to walk around the castle ruins, spring for a drink in the hotel - also spectacular views!

They have a great little activity guide for kids
Oct. 2019 • Family
If you are trying to follow the kids activity guide and wonder how it correlates with the adult numbered walked, it’s because you have to walk back down the clock tower steps. You can also get into that part of the clock tower from later on in the tour, if you need to skip the steps (because of vertigo or mobility issues)

A great castle ruin
Oct. 2019 • Couples
The ruins of the castle are very large. It was simple to follow the map around the grounds. The museum gave a good overview of the history of the castle. It is not a good place to visit if you have mobility issues as the ground is very uneven.

Excellent tour of the ruins
Sep. 2019 • Solo
I went to the castle ruins without any real plans of what I wanted to do there beyond have a look around. There happened to be a tour, in English, of the underground areas that are usually closed off. David, our guide, was wonderful, well versed, and funny. This was absolutely the highlight and I encourage anyone who goes to see if there is an English tour happening. The tour bought the ruins to life with stories of its history and inhabitants. The above ground ruins that are publically accessible we’re beautiful too, though I only spent about an hour there which included plenty of gorgeous photos. Overall, this was one of my favourite castle stops along the Rhine.
