  • Terrific museum, knights and armor, ancient weapons... a dungeon, a 500 foot well... fascinating place to visit! This castle is also the world's oldest Youth Hostel! (still in operation!) New tram bri...  read more »
  • One of the most beautiful castles in North Rhine-Westphalia, when not even the most beautiful! We were now already several times there. Every season, the castle is worth a visit. The Museum is very large, nicely decorated and offers a lot of information! The resident restaurant is also recommended. If the medieval market opens its doors in Altena, a journey through time at the castle is to experience.

  • What a great place to visit. Well worth taking the elevator up and going through all the exhibits. Very well done, informative and easy to follow tour. Great for kids as well with lots of armor and weapons towards the end of the tour. Would go again in a heartbeat.
  • Just okay honestly. Nothing spectacular but it is interesting to know that the world's first youth hostel is located in it!
  • Drove 1.5 hrs to visit, not really worth the trip.
  • Love it.
  • Very loving and beautiful style from "Museum". You can learn much useful information from that time. There's a great tour for the entrance fee must be paid. This is worth but in any case. The according to how many notes you would like to read through, you can spend there quickly several hours. In close proximity to the Castle, there are very few parking spaces. In addition, you can no longer back from the Castle, must shut down so on the other side of the mountain again. Best down Park and ride the elevator experience. There are combined tickets for elevator and Museum.
