Koblenz Travel Tip:
Stolzenfels Castle (Schloss Stolzenfels)
Stozelfels Castle (Schloss Stolzenfels)
On the outskirts of Koblenz, the neo-Gothic towers of Schloss Stolzenfels come into view. The castle's origins date from the mid-13th century, when the archbishop of Trier sought to counter the influence (and toll rights) of the archbishop of Mainz, who had just built Burg Lahneck, a castle at the confluence of the Lahn and Rhine rivers. Its superbly furnished period rooms and beautiful gardens are well worth a visit. From B-9 (curbside parking) it's about a 15-minute walk to the castle entrance.

One review says no need to enter (although the entry is only 4 Euro and affordable) as the charm is on the outside. What do you advise as our main interest is photography. Will we be able to get good photographs if we walk around the castle grounds and follow the sign to the view point.
