It is not exactly the Cinderella castle but Schloss Stolzenfels was certainly not intended to be less romantic. It is rather a palace, with a small but splendid garden within the castle itself, which offers from both inside and outside splendig views on the Rhine. There is a parking garage at the entrance and after you have paid the low... More

We got here at 5pm for the last tour and we were the only ones. Alas German only and no English notes so we were pointed in the right direction and wandered while the 'guide' closed up. The courtyard is very attractive and the rooms that are open are worthy of a visit. But don't expect support.

This was the first castle we saw as we cruised up the Rhine. It looks like fairy tales happened here. It would have been nice to visit, but we had more castles to see. This one was one of the prettiest.

We saw this castle while taking a boat tour from Koblenz. This looked really cool and the coloration really stood out against the green background.

I have visited Schloß Stolzenfels several times and it is delightful each time. One of the "romantic" Rhein Castles built on the ruins of a long-destroyed defensive castle, Stolzenfels has the fun Gothic romanticism castles should have. Most fun is getting to wear the felt slippers you're required to don to avoid damaging the gorgeous wood floors as you go... More

We checked the hours they were open both on trip advisor and on their website. We showed up...and hiked the 20 mins up the hill, only to find it boarded up tight. I tried to call, and it just rang. No sign to explain, in any language. It was very pretty and the walk around the outside and the view... More

I enjoyed the visit with my wife. The nice walk up the winding road sets the mood. Once there the view is breathtaking. You can see up and down the river on a clear day. The tour is great and interesting. The minimal entry fee is well worth it. Must see.

The castle itself on the inside is not that impressive, the rooms are quite boring. This place's charm is on the outside. Sadly, you can not access the balcony and the garden without attending the tour, which is only given in German and takes about 40 min. But yes, it sits on the most perfect point to get an amazing...

cool spring day but view and tour impressed the whole family. We drove to the schloss and paid for parking...could have parked free on main road. Walk up hill was invigorating and kept us warm on a cool day. Views of Rhine River are tremendous and would have been breathtaking on a completely sunny day. Tour was well worth time...guide...

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
