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

They give you an English handout. But it is confusing because you don't know what room you are in to correspond with the hand out. The castle is beautiful and the sights are amazing! There is a bit (.8 mile) walk all up hill. I wore the wrong shoes so it was a little uncomfortable. Wear good shoes :) and... More

We visited castle Stolzenfels on a sunday afternoon. The only way to get into the castle is with a guide. There were no guiding in english, so you have to be good at german to understand what the guide says. The interior of the castle is very impressive. It was renovated recently and there is a renovation going on all... More

Awesome cycle from Koblenz to this castle, lovely walk up through the forest and the castle is like stepping into the Game of Thrones series. Wonderful experience and great value for money!

If you're staying near Koblenz the castle is best visited by car- only 10 minutes from the centre. There ins a pleasant 800 m or so of a walk uphill from the parking and there is even more walks beyond the castle with even better views. It was surpisingly cheap (few euros per adult and free for small kids). Don't... More
