Had a nice afternoon here with an interesting tour of the Castle. The history of the place was well explained by the guide (Obviously the reviewer from Kansas wasn't listening or has no idea of European History). Had a nice relaxing time outside the restaurant...More

We took the train to Oberlahnstein, then walked to the castle, took us about 30 minutes, is pretty much all uphill, and very strenous, especially as you get closer to the castle. There is a cafe right next to the castle, which serves the best...More

This is the castle where 12 last Templars sought for refuge. They were attacked by overwhelming power by the local bishop and fought to the bitter end. Apparently the attackers were so impressed by the bravery that they were about to let the last defender...More

Like others this is a recreation of a destroyed castle. And the contents are also recreations after that. Worth the 15 tour.

We only stayed for one night but the facilities were clean and tidy, possibly requiring some modernisation but it all adds to the charm. Fresh bread/croissant available in the morning. Without the location this would be an average campsite, but the views make it special.

This is one of the more interesting castles we have visited in Germany. There isn't much information available about tour times. We basically showed up and were lucky to get a spot--cannot reserve in advance. Our tour guide graciously let us bring our dog in...More
