  • Fantastic location, view and decent food on site. Tours offered in English as well.
  • Lovely view from Rhine valley and wondered experience of biking around
  • A terrific opportunity to see a castle close to its original purpose.
  • The castle tour was good, but I have had better experiences. One should visit only if they have excess time on their hands while in Koblenz.
  • Nice castle shop with old prints
