Rheinfels Castle

Rheinfels Castle is the largest ruin on the Rhine and one of the most magnificent. It is just as important in terms of the castle building skills of the counts of Katzenelnbogen in the 14th century as for the construction of palaces and fortresses by the landgraves of Hessen-Kassel in the 16th to 18th centuries. The expansiveness of this fortification, with numerous battlements and underground defence tunnels, some of which are still accessible today, offers an experience like no other. Visit the city’s website for all the latest information on prices and opening hours.
