Our family enjoyed exploring this castle on our own with the help of an information pamphlet supplied with admission. There is a relatively steep, but short, switch-back walk to the impressive draw bridge and gate. From there you can wander through the beautiful grounds full of flowers and grape vine covered arbours. The church architecture is exquisite and is complete with a crypt. Several rooms inside the castle are furnished and give a real sense of what life might be like living in a castle hundreds of years ago. The highlight of the tour was the climb up an exterior open staircase to the top of the castle tower that stands on the edge of the river-side cliff. The stairs are a little scary but the views of the Rhine River and surrounding countryside are spectacular. We drove to this castle from St. Goar where we were staying. The castle parking is along the road about 2 km south of Trechtingshausen.
