Very Cozy village down the hill. Try out the old restaurant and the wine testing bar in the village. The castle has a great view over Rhine. Not fancy at all. Best thing you can do is to book in advance and get a small...More

We hiked up in the morning to find breathtaking views of the Rhine. The path was well marked and easy to find right in the center of the town of Bacharach

The castle is now a youth hostel, but you can walk around and seem much of it. It's a very steep and challenging climb up. The view about 3/4 the way up and at the top are very worthwhile.
