There is a small town and there is a rocky beach. A beautiful and cozy place. If you go in summer, be sure to prepare for sun protection and a pair of comfortable shoes.

Didn't have reservation or schedule, and arrived at 11 am when no tours were scheduled and doors were closed. If you visit, do your homework before you go; be ready to adjust your schedule to fit theirs, esp. if you want to see inside (a tour is required to go inside) or have a tour in English.

We visited on July 2016. We were two families with teenagers The short path up to the castle is very steep and not easy. The castle is very interesting and holds a lot of history. It represents few stages of construction over the years. The guided tour is offered in only Italian and German; however, there was quite a few families who were English, so the guided tour, was given in Italian and English. The guide has a lot of knowledge, but she spook very fast and sometimes was unkind to questions However, it is a good tour that explains how people used to live; even our teenagers took interest. Guided tours take place only 3-4 times each day, it is not allow visiting without the guided tour.

I liked the castle tour, but our car window was smashed by gypsies while we were on the tour. It is deserted in the parking lot at the bottom and you have to go up a big hill to the castle for the tour and they gypsies know exactly when the tour is and that you can't hear anything inside. So, if you go, make sure your car is completely empty and leave the doors unlocked and the windows down so the gypsies can paw though your car without destroying anything. Otherwise, it's not a happy ending.

Reifenstein Castle was a highlight of my 5 week long trip. My family and I drove to the castle which was not very far from the city center. While there is a way to get there by foot, I would not suggest walking as it requires quite a long trek. We had friends who rode their bikes, and it took them about an hour, from the city center. Wear closed toed shoes as the path up to the castle is very steep and full of loose rocks, so it is very easy to slip. The castle was breathtaking as it held so much history. It seemed as if we traveled back in time as soon as we stepped through the castle walls. The guided tour was offered in only Italian and German, however their was quite a few families who were English, so they modified their guided tour, and it was given in Italian and English. A must if you visit the area.
