Amazing food, amazing view, family and pet friendly. A visit could be done during any time of year in any temperature and when it becomes too hot or cold, go in the cool restaurant or outside in the either open or closed and heated area to receive an further scenic view while you dine.

This is a small castle in ruins. It has only a few intact rooms and many have water dripping through the sandstone. It is lovely how the erosion has softened the lines of the castle walls, the moss and ivy grow freely, and the flowers are just blooming all along the base and in areas where the soil is deeper...

Although it is possible to arrive by car and park just next to the castle's walls I truly recommend to walk. There are several trails with varying difficulty. Steep parts are followed by those with almost no climb, at several places you can relax and enjoy beautiful view to the town. A long the trails can be seen funny statues... More

Enjoyed the view on the way up and at the top for this attraction. Once at the top, just some castle ruins, not a typical castle if you are looking for medieval tours etc...

We visited Burg Nanstein on a rainy day a few weeks ago. It was really neat being able to see and walk around the castle ruins. Loved the view from the top too! Would love to see this place on a sunny day

On the first warm day in February, I went by myself to explore Nanstein. It was a wonderful day. The castle was easy to find and explore on my own. It was easy enough to navigate and get around and the view was amazing. The ruins were very interesting. The cost- 3 euro- very affordable. After exploring the ruins I... More

We drove up a narrow winding road and were lucky to be only the second car there, as we were able to find a parking spot. There are not many parking spots. The castle ruins were already closed when we arrived for our visit, but it was still nice to walk around and admire the history. We had dinner at... More

A nice way to spend the afternoon. The ruins are very scenic, and the view of Landstuhl from the top is quite breathtaking.

Lovely view from the upper levels. Not much to read as it is only partly standing. Interesting and easy to get around. Walking to it hard if groups are there as car parking down or up the hill and hard for small children or disabled.

Thank DK J
