Worth the steep walk up ,but pace yourself ! Family of four with kids 8 and 11 they had no problem with the steps going up to the castle . If you are in the area it would be a shame to miss out on this castle steeped in history. Highly recommended .

We had a family youth hostel membership and getting a room for 4 at this hostel was easy and cheap. We loved the view from our window, the trails nearby, the yummy breakfast with fresh rolls, jam, coffee, deli meat & deli cheese

It was a good hike up to the castle and the views from the castle are amazing. We did not stay at the hotel.

Since I was not a guest, I could not access many of the higher levels of the castle. However, the areas I could access were nice and provided wonderful views. It is certainly worth the hike from the ground level of Bacharach. The hike, I felt, was much better than reaching the summit but I am glad I carved out... More

Spending the night in a castle = a dream come true for young and old! Our family of 5 slept in a large, clean room in castle themed modern bunk beds. Our room featured a a modern bathroom outfitted with a shower and toilet. The breakfast was wonderful and lavish. If we have opportunity to travel to Europe again, I... More

If dry, the hike up is doable: wear comfortable shoes. Lots to see along the way and the view is impressive.

From the village centre it is 367 steps to this attraction. Take your time and it is done in 20 minutes. Well worth the hike just for the stunning view of the Rhine from above Bacharach.

This place gives a great view of the town and the Rhine valley. It is very nice if one comes by car. However, it is possible to reach this place by hiking. It is worth your effort to climb up! Strongly recommended!

Burg Stahleck sits high above the beautiful little town of Bacharach . It's quite a hike up to get there but well worth the effort if you are physically capable. If you have a car, you can drive up . If unable to hike up , consider taking a taxi . Once at the top , you will have incredible... More
