After you hike up the trifels hill, you get to visit the castle. However the main highlight is the view of the beautiful surrounding valeys and hills from the rock near the castle. I could spend hours simply enjoying that splendid view!

Took a drive to see Burg Trifels today, and enjoyed the whole day. We arrived at the parking lot located at the Barbarossa Restaurant at 1:00pm, and paid €1.50 to park. The walk up to the castle isn't long 20 minutes, but it is steep in places. I enjoyed the walk up, and the views of the castle as we... More

Fully restored, and minimal entrance fees (3 euros) the walk/hike to the castle was worth it. DO NOT ATTEMPT IF YOU ARE HANDICAPPED OR IN BAD SHAPE! Views are the best for miles around. It is literally a panoramic view. Very windy on our visit in February. Throne room was amazing. Very clean restrooms. Awesome throne room! Delighted I went!

This is an excellent castle to visit. if you are a history enthusiast then drop in. this is the site where King Richard the Lion Hearted was held captive. Fun for the whole family to go through.

We visited during a medieval festival held in the city of Annweiler and took a drive up a very scenic route to the castle on the top of the hill. Very interesting and well repaired castle with historical displays interesting for the whole family.

Heavily renovated, but in a great position. Can get a good feeling of how it used to be originally. You can drive most of the way, last bit a nice walk. Whole area good for hiking.

This castle is beautiful and quiet. Not many tourists comes here and has an awesome view. There is a slight hike to get to the castle, a good 10 min. if you are fit or 15 if you decide to stroll (all uphill and a decent grade).

The view from Trifels Castle is just wonderful. You can either walk up from Annweiler - but beware, it is about 3 hours all up hill, or drive up to the castle and walk up about 10 minutes up the steep hill. But the view from up there is worth it. When visiting Trifels Castle, stay in Annweiler, a beautiful... More
