Rheinstein Castle

Rheinstein Castle
Burg Rheinstein near Trechtinghausen

Part of the UNESCO Upper Middle Rhein Valley, Rheinstein Castle is located on the cliffs above Trechtinghausen. First mentioned in 1279, the castle became the property of the influential archbishop of Trier, Kuno von Falkenstein, in the 14th century. At the begining of the 19th century Prince Friedrich of Prussia acquired the ruins and had them rebuilt in psudo-Gothic style. In 1975 the opera singer Hermann Hecher bought the castle and continued its restoration. The castle is now privately owned by the Hecher family. Rheinstein contains a collection of armour and art treasures of the 16th & 17th century, which is well worth seeing, around the apartment tower from the 14th Century you find neo-Gothic sets, turrets, terraces and iron stairs, and the castle site has wonderful views of the Rhein and surrounding towns.

Hours: March 15- Nov. 15 daily 9:30am - 6pm. Nov. 16 - March 14 weekends 10am - 5pm.

Admission: Adults 4.30 €, Concessions 3 €.
