Very worthwhile. Most authentic I have seen giving you an accurate feel for how lives were lived in this era. The facts from the guide were fascinating particularly in relation to the castle modifications over the years as warfare and "technology" changed.

Was visiting some friends in Koblenz and they took us here. The castle is beautifully restored with many rooms furnished as they would have been when it was occupied. We joined a small tour group and the guide was fantastic, very knowledgable and had a good sense of humour. We also had some time to kill and sat at the... More

A stop and guided tour of the castle was one of the highlights of our Rhine River cruise. This is the only fully preserved castle on the Rhine. It was never captured so it was very well preserved. It is furnished with period pieces (I assume). Several cannons, the torture room, dining room, the noble’s bedroom are all parts of... More

This was a really interesting castle to visit on the Rhine River at Cologne. You get a great view of the river and of Cologne. The castle is a great attraction and you get a real feel for the way the people lived during these periods. The rooms are well furnished with the items from that period, such as bed,... More

It's quite a climb up the hill to the castle from your parking spot but it's worth it. The only fully preserved castle on the Rhine, it's a real education. A bit reminiscent of Edinburgh Castle without the crowds. Although we missed the view as it was foggy, it cleared after we descended and we had a magnificent view of... More

This is well worth a visit if you are not suffering from mobility issues. The car park is halfway up the hill to the castle so you must walk the rest of the way. Once you have reached the castle there is a horse path that is rugged and uneven that you must use to get into the castle. We... More

This was a side excursion while on a Viking cruise. It is a strange castle. Great tour. Torture room was really odd. Worth seeing.

I took a walking tour of this castle and stayed for dinner. To dine in a castle so old was a memorable experience, the food was good and hearty and there was entertainment. The castle itself is lovely, beware of the cobbled stairways and paths they are very uneven and slippery. Lots of history, wood panelling and armour. There is... More
