This castle is one of the few that is in almost perfect condition and restored and I damaged through history. There is a guided tour for $5 euro although it is only in German they give you an English pamphlet to read on the tour. It has many original furnishings and artifacts and is a wonderful view of history. Just... More

Quite a climb, partly steps but mainly on the road, saw a couple pushing a push chair, which must have been quite difficult. Worth the climb for the views, but didn't go into castle as only guided tours in German.

A lot of look but don't touch so not a good idea for the little ones. Tour is in German only but they have English guide books you can use along the tour.

We came here a few days ago however the actual castle was closed. It was still worth the trip as we walked around the gardens and it is all very pretty and the views are stunning.

Went here with my son (12). We cycled from Koblenz centre which took us about 40 minutes along the Rhine at leisurely pace (check out Bike Rental Zangmeister). Parked bikes at the village public car park (free) and walked up to the castle. Very pleasant albeit steep walk but all tarmac/road surface so no problem. Entrance for the 2 of... More

The castle was set in a beautiful location overlooking the rhine river. You can park at the bottom free for about 4 hours. Its a little walk up to get to the castle and its worth it. Make sure to get the free token from the ticket office for your parking so that you get you 4 hours. The castle... More

It was a pain in the butt figuring out where the parking lot was for this place. We kept skipping it and the GPS was of no help. We finally found it and made the hike up to it uphill so it may not be easy for those who have disabilities. The hike took about 25 minutes because we were... More

For anyone intrigued by castles, this one is a must visit! Complete with a guided tour through the garden, knights armory, bedrooms, and a wonderful historical explanation of the history, you can get a pretty good understanding of how the castles and those living within their walls controlled the area and river below back in the day. There is ticketed... More

I really wanted to go to Schloss Stolzenfels because of the amazing photos on the internet. Unfortunately the castle was under construction when I was there.

This was a nice diversion while in Koblenz. We took a bus from city center and hiked up the hill to the castle. Since we like to walk, we thought it was a very nice hike up and down. However, if you have health issues, the climb can be a bit laborious. However, once there, the views are fantastic and... More
