24th October 2014. You park at foot of hill, and as so often climb numerous stairs and wend your way on a path which zigzags up the hill...all worth it though. Castle is very well preserved. You have to take a guided tour which lasts about 40 mins and is in German - they gave us some laminated cards in... More

This castle on the hill is very busy on Sunday but, happily they have a shuttle bus to take those who are not up to the long steep walk up. Once there, the castle is very nice.

The castle is a 10 minutes bus ride out of Koblenz (there is a bus leaving from the main train station). Then you have to walk up a hill for another 10 minutes and you reach the castle. Castle was built n the middle of the nineteenth century for the Prussian king on top of castle ruins from the middle... More

No English tours - but we did receive a guide in English. Very adorable garden. Tour was limiting - only covered a handful of rooms and not the chapel. A lot of construction...confusion about how to get there. Not able to drive up and walking path not marked very well. Great view of Koblenz and the Rhine. Just felt we... More

Wear comfortable shoes, as you will be walking uphill for almost half an hour in order to get to the castle grounds. But the hike is beautiful and surrounded by trees and neat things to take pictures of. Once you get to the castle, get the tour. Otherwise you will not have the chance to actually go inside the buildings.... More

On the way between Koblenz and Boppard is the stunning Schloss Stolzenfels. Turning off the B9 road you park in the Garage and then walk up the winding road for 15 minutes. This is a pleasant and easy walk and is very relaxing. As you arrive at the Schloss you see panoramic views over the Rhine. It is compulsory to... More

This castle is a must see in the Koblenz area. It is a bit of a hike up hill, about 20 minutes total. On the way up there is a carriage house and chapel. Once you reach the castle there is a beautiful view of the Rhine. Cross the drawbridge and you will see the window to purchase tickets. Adults... More

I loved this place. The interior was well done and presented. The outside had beautiful views and gardens. The tour wouldn't be very exciting for kids- but they did enjoy running around the garden area. The walk to the castle is up hill and a bit hard with kids. But worth it. The tour was in German but they did... More

First of all, this castle dates from the 1200's, and is worth seeing. If you're in the area, take the time to visit this piece of history. Parking for the castle is tricky, but there's actually nice parking garage at the base of the hill, and if you take your token up to the castle gate, they'll validate for you... More
