  • We were in the region to the walking on the road and visited the Castle Berwarstein. The very beautiful, much still in the original castle with underground passages is a ideal and rewarding destination for families with children in the region. Admission for 2 adults and one child was 13,-EU. be worth that. Gladly, we therefore recommend the Castle Berwartstein.

  • The castle of the Berwartstein, which is private property, worth a detour. It's the only reconstituted Castle of the massif of the Vosges to the North. Many ruins built on the rocky peaks are visible on the wooded hills of the Northern Vosges. It has been fully reconstructed towards the end of the nineteenth century. We can get an idea of what all these castles were. The visit is necessarily guided and very rich information about the building as well as the medieval period. There are several remarkable architectural elements. So a well with a depth of 104 m carved into the rock, an underground passage also carved into the rock are the pride of this castle. It is regrettable that this tour is offered in German. Before or after the visit, a charming Inn welcomes you in the room of the Knights or on the terrace in fine weather. Small regional dishes are offered at very affordable prices. For fans of the middle age, the Castle also offers nights in bed and breakfast. After a visit to the ruins of Fleckenstein, Wasigenstein, Loewenstein, Lutzelhardt,... a visit to the Berwartstein to actually view what all these fortresses of stone have been before their destruction ordered by Louis 14. At the end of the visit, we better understand the major political influence had this region in the 13th century.

  • Wonderful forested environment, nature, and then this castle, which was built in good part directly into the sandstone. From the outside a feast from the inside (guided tour 45-60 min) interesting, peppered with anecdotes and horror stories.

  • Would have been 5 stars if we could have gotten the English tour. Luckily we had a translator with us and we did a little research before we went. I suggest reading stories about the castle before you go wiki or Google.
  • We have made with Saturday the last tour (October 01, 2016, about 1630 am). After five minutes I regret it already. The leader was quite arrogant and they clearly felt, that he has no desire. Then one shouldn't however be. The food at the Buschenschenke is ok, it took but about four occupied tables quite long.

  • It was a good tour of the castle is very impressive and really worth seeing. Caution the stairs to the outdoor cellar are very poorly lit that you could improve technique good and cheap with LED. Would be important!

  • On the single inhabited Castle in the Palatinate, medieval life comes alive through stories. Impressive building. Catering available. Not barrier-free.
