It took about half an hour bus ride from Koblenz to get uphill to the castle which had been built in the 19th century. Entrance fee of 5 Euro per person was required and you could toured around the castle and the garden as well....More
Taking a 20min bus ride from Koblenz (arround €5 return) and a steep winding walk up the side of the hill, reveals the Cream turrets of a splendid fairytale castle overlooking the Rhine. Well worth the visit, the castle has a tour (although in German,...More
We got the bus from koblinz which stops where the castle is.
You can then walk the winding road through the woods up to the castle.
It cost 5 euros per person to get in which included a tour. The tour is in german, took...More
Our son selected this one and we all liked it. You get a tour when you paid for the entry - it is usually in German - but they have a folder in English with the main info. The garden is really nice and stands...More
Castles fascinate me for so many reasons ,rekindling the stories from my childhood about knights and princesses (one of them undoubtedly myself ) .Or may be I am stunned by their striking architecture .According to the statistics ,Germany is home of 20000+ castles ,which means...More
This castle had been closed and we were glad it was reopened. Very beautiful. You can only go on a guided tour. Ours was in German but they did give us an English guide. It was a 20 minute steep walk up to the castle....More
We had a really good guided tour of this beautiful old castle. It was in German but we had German speakers among our party so it was fine!
The castle is a short, maybe quarter hour drive from downtown Koblenz. It is perched high above...More
Outside the center of Koblenz, to Castle Stolzenfels. This impressive castle was built in the 19th century on the remains of a 13th-century castle, which was destroyed by the French in 1689. Within the castle you will find beautiful, spacious gardens and parks.
The second Castle I visited is Schloss Stolzenfels. There is a parking ramp at the entrance to a long walking path to the castle. The path is a single lane paved road. It is a low to medium grade and around 1500 feet. The castle...More
Hello, My four friends and I will be driving from Koblenz, past Schloss Stolzenfels, past Marksburg Castle, past Lorelei Rock, past Rudesheim and Mainz, and eventually to Heidelberg, all along the Rhine River. We would like to stop at between 4-5 wineries along the way and do samplings/tastings at each. Can anyone recommend 4-5 wineries that are along this route that do tastings and would be friendly and amicable toward English-speaking people? Thanks, Michael

The driver, myself, does not drink wine but does enjoy watching the tastings so we don't have to worry about the DUI laws. I did see the list of wineries before but it is a large list and I don't know which ones allow tastings AND speak English.

Hello. I am interested in the following points of interest: Koblenz,Schloss Stolzenfels Castle, Deutsches Eck and Eltz Castle. Does anyone have any helpful suggestions on visiting in June? Also, is it possible to take a half day cruise on the Rhein/La Mosselle Rivers? We are a married gay couple-does anyone know how the locals are when it comes to gays? I have heard somethings... Any feedback or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

There are boat rides on both rivers. On the Rhine, the best one is to go from Rudeshiem or Bingen to St. Goar or Boppard. Take a train to the start location. Show your ticket and get a discount on the KD boats.
12 Hours in Frankfurt (2 Replies)
Hi All, I know this question is asked a lot, and a lot of people say that one should just search for things to do, but I need a few ideas. My wife and I are stopping over in Frankfurt for 12 hours. The last time I went to FRA I didnt think spending time in the city itself was worthwhile as there is more to Germany than a modern city. Does anyone have any advice on short trips from FRA. I was thinking about visiting the black forest for the day, or going to a local castle like Schloss...More

Frankfurt certainly has more than just modern buildings. If that is all that you saw, you didn't research your visit very well. There are dozens of museums, as well as historic churches, gorgeous old neighborhoods, great farmers markets, and more. If you do want to go further afield, you could take a train along the Rhein, just keeping in mind that you need to get back to the airport with sufficient time allowed for security, plus a bit of cushion in case of delays. Visiting Marksburg...More
