"Burg Rheinstein" is nowadays a interesting museum with a long history. There is a restaurant for visitors and if you'd like to a special experience - there two beautiful apartments which can be booked for a overnight stay. The castle "Burg Rheinstein" is located approx. 5 kilometers (approx. 3 miles) westward of Bingen, down the river Rhine, at the south entrance of the UNESCO Cultural Heritage of the Upper Middle-Rhine Valley ("Oberes Mittelrheintal"), face to face with the village of Assmannshausen. The castle was the symbol of the castle-reconstruction period in the 19th century, the so-called Romanticism, because of its impressive location, and also its eventful history had many highlights.

Another great example of a medieval castle directly on the Rhein. Easy self-guided tour was very interesting and relaxing. Our second favorite castle after Burg Reichenstein

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this lovely castle. Car parking here is easy and is along the main road at the base of the castle. Consequently, to visit the castle you have a steep 5 minute hike up. Visiting this castle is not via...More

Walk up to the Castle is a serious workout but worth the effort. Castle is well maintained and informative. Many more steps to climb if you want to see all the places but the amaizing views from the high areas are worth every step. No...More

I recently visited Burg Rheinstein with Stan from Privatour.com. The walk up is a good workout but the castle is well worth it. A family purchased it in the 70s and worked hard to restore it. They did an amazing job with the structure and...More

This is one of the few castles where you can take pictures. There is no tour guide so you go at you own pace. What beautiful scenes of the Rhine and the countryside. Be sure to go here.

The castle is a gem. Less impressive maybe than Burg Eltz but very romantic. We definitely recommend to buy tickets for the round tour which includes the chairlifts from and to Assmanshausen and Rudesheim. A boattrip across the Rhine will then bring you to this...More
