  • The Castle isn't big, but looks nice. There is beautiful view on the river, surrounding towns and mountains. If comming by car, the parking can be a real problem
  • Nice castle. Beautiful landscape
  • Quiet place, not so popular, but the views from up there is wonderful. If you visit Eltz Castle it is a must to visit Thurant.
  • Beautiful castle, very well maintained and friendly staff on site. With wonderful view it's a great place for a visit.
  • We accidentally noticed this castle on the hill when we stopped by a grocery shopping down the hill. It may not be as magnificent as Burg Eltz, or as much as *exploitable* as Rheinfels Castle, but it is still a descent castle which lots of expedition and also you can climb up top of the castle to have a very good view around the area.
