  • After the tour along the Weinstrasse we decided to head over to one of the few in the area. Is parking, a restaurant, a gift shop (in which Turek sells magnets with a landscape view of 5 euro, in ugly!), there are information boards with maps. 20 minute approach up the Hill is steep, but the views from the castle on the mountain and in the valleys shall compensate the hardships. The castle is open to visitors, is the suitable infrastructure, secure Rails, attractions for children, is a little history and exhibits to watch.

  • The Trifels is a must for lovers of the Castle, less because of the buildings or an exhibition, that represents life in the middle ages, that there is no fact there. However, who is interested in the history of Richard the Lionheart and his enemies can find a beautifully legible and detailed Chronicle entry from €4.50 for adults. For children, there is a scavenger hunt game that makes playful experienced historical events. The NAZI history of the Castle, which has led to its current appearance, vividly explains. In addition, it is of course, to admire the Imperial regalia. Finally the film presentation about the Castle look, enjoy the magnificent round-to views of the tower and the €1.50 car park voucher for a cup of coffee at the foot of the Trifels invest and the perfect day trip is finished.

  • It was nice adventure to visit this castle. My advice is to enjoy the internal area of it. There you will find small hallways and some original staff from castls previous life. Also the wiev from top of the castle is amazing. My best recommendations.
  • Smaller than expected...but I can definitely see why it lasted so long. It's location is amazing, and the views offered once atop the castle are breathtaking. Also, I recommend visitors watch the video showcasing the history of Burg Trifels. Its inside the castle behind a curtain, and there are benches to sit on. P.s. sorry for the bad pictures 😏
  • castle is very nice and you get a nice view from the top. with lot of history. nice to see.
  • Beautifully restored castle from the 10th century with fabulous views of the Palatinate Forest and the Rhine Valley. Take a guided tour to get a glimpse of the rich history of the place which also served as Prison for King Richard 1st Lionheart until the brits paid a ransom of more than 23 tons of silver! (That was before he returned from his crusade and married Robin Hood to Maid Marian 😇).
  • Very beautiful and a lot of history! The climb up to the castle was a good little hike and the views from the top are beautiful!
