Reichenstein Castle (German: Burg Reichenstein) is a castle near the town of Trechtingshausen in Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany.

Rhein in Flammen
Rhein in Flammen (English: "Rhine in Flames") is the name of five different firework displays along the river Rhine in Germany. The displays take place annually, at various locations along the river. On the five different dates, brightly illuminated ships sail the river in an evening convoy for their passengers to see the full firework display at each location of the river. The firework displays are started when the ships arrive. During the firework displays in St. Goar and St. Goarshausen, the convoy waits statically between the two castles Burg Maus and Burg Rheinfels. On the river banks wine festivals take place that attract hundreds of thousands of visitors every year. The biggest "Rhein in Flammen" event takes place in Koblenz every year, on the second Saturday in August. The Bonn event takes place at the Rheinauen Park in Bonn, on the first Saturday in May.

More about the History of Trechtingshausen
In Frankish times, Trechtingshausen belonged to the lower Nahegau (a county). Row graves from this time have been unearthed by building work. At the time of the municipality’s first documentary mention in 1122, its name was given as Drodingishusen, and then in 1135 Drohtenhusen, in 1328 Dreieckshusen and in 1335 Drechlingshusen.
From the 1135 documents comes the information that Trechtingshausen in the “parish of Saint Clement” was under the ownership of Kornelimünster Abbey near Aachen (Aachen vacation rentals | Aachen travel guide). Because it was so far away, the monastery appointed knights (Vögte) as bailiffs and protectors. They had their seat at Reichenstein Castle. Over time, though, the knights sank into turpitude, becoming nothing more than robbers.
In 1938 the village passed to the Amt of Bacharach (Bacharach vacation rentals | Bacharach travel guide), on 1 October 1968 to the Verbandsgemeinde of Bacharach and on 8 November 1970 to the Verbandsgemeinde of Rhein-Nahe in the Mainz-Bingen district, to which the municipality has belonged since 9 June 1969.
