Overview

"Burg Rheinstein" is nowadays a interesting museum with a long history. There is a restaurant for visitors and if you'd like to a special experience - there two beautiful apartments which can be booked for a overnight stay. The castle "Burg Rheinstein" is located approx. 5 kilometers (approx. 3 miles) westward of Bingen, down the river Rhine, at the south entrance of the UNESCO Cultural Heritage of the Upper Middle-Rhine Valley ("Oberes Mittelrheintal"), face to face with the village of Assmannshausen. The castle was the symbol of the castle-reconstruction period in the 19th century, the so-called Romanticism, because of its impressive location, and also its eventful history had many highlights.

This castle is almost fully restored and wonderful to visit. The walk up from the parking lot is a bit rough though. The castle is not too big or small with a crypt and chapel. The restaurant has wonderful views of the Rhine with little...More

The castle is nestled on a rocky outcrop, some of which is tied in place to prevent accidental rock slides. A walk through this castle makes you appreciate the modern conveniences we have today. It is quite a climb up to the castle, but the...More

The Rheinstein castle is beautiful and easy/quick to access; privately owned and they've done a fantastic job of keeping it authentic and pristine. The views from the primary look-out are tremendous and best of all, there's a place to have a beer and soak up...More

This is a castle that is relatively easy to get to by car, and while parking along the road can be tight at best, it does get you to within easy walking distance. This is an easy castle to explore without a guide or a...More

Great castle easily accessible from the car park below it on the main road. Awesome sweeping views up and down the Rhine valley. We also went to Soonek Castle a touch further north which was cool as well. The road from Bingen north to Koblenz...More

Another great example of a medieval castle directly on the Rhein. Easy self-guided tour was very interesting and relaxing. Our second favorite castle after Burg Reichenstein

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this lovely castle. Car parking here is easy and is along the main road at the base of the castle. Consequently, to visit the castle you have a steep 5 minute hike up. Visiting this castle is not via...More

Walk up to the Castle is a serious workout but worth the effort. Castle is well maintained and informative. Many more steps to climb if you want to see all the places but the amaizing views from the high areas are worth every step. No...More

Absolutely not! Situated on a rocky ridge, Burg Rheinstein rises approximately 270 feet above the Rhine River in the Loreley Valley, and it is almost a climb, not a stroll! You'll be dragging the stroller not pushing it.
