I have nothing bad to say about the castle, it was beautiful, I only wish it knew more about the castle itself and its history on the Rhine. There didn't seem to be any options for languages other than German. I spoke with the man at the ticket booth in English and he didn't ask about language preference, nor did... More

Decided to visit this castle after a visit to Koblenz before I drove home. The castle is situated in a forrest/park and the walk up to it is truly magnificent. A long windy road takes you through the trees up to the castle. During the path there are many vistas on the valley and river below. On a warm day... More

Nicely refurbished castle but just a little too new. It doesn't have the charm of some of the other castles, the finishes are just too modern. Great view though.

Wonderful castle with excellent of period interior. There is a shuttle bus from bottom of the castle all the way to the gate for 1 euro per person, well worth it gong up as very steep. Fun part is the slippers they make you put over your shoes as you walk round.

After a lovely peaceful walk up to the Schloss, we enjoyed the short tour around the interior. I'm not sure what other reviewers are talking about when they say there is no information in English, as there is if you ask. Not extensive, but enough to help you get the gist of each room. It stated outside that no photography... More

Lovely Schloss with amazing views lots of interesting history and really beautiful gardens to wander in. I would have given it 5 Stars, only my German isn't fantastic and my husbands is pretty poor. We wouldn't expect an English guide, but an English written guide to take on the tour with us would have added a lot to our visit... More

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.
