The castle itself was as I remember it! Felt great to be where Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade was filmed. However... the inside of the castle on the film was in England somewhere, so don't expect the interior to match.There was the possibility of a tour but only in German. Still! The highlight of my trip!

By rights, I should be telling you that this castle was amazing and give it 5 stars. I can't do that because we had a terrible visit. The castle has the most interesting entrance through a covered barbican which is so cool I was totally geeking out. The inner courtyard was equally cool. I admired the haphazard architecture of a...

Located at the junction of two little rivers Schloss Bürresheim is one of the old residences of the Archbishop of Trier. As one of the few castles in the area it survived the centuries without major damage. The exhibits give an exciting insight into life several centuries back in time. Great fun for the whole family, and children are usually... More
