  • For fans of castles or castle ruins, Greifenstein is a must. Also visit to the Bell Museum is worthwhile in any case.

  • Very interesting castle with Bell museum, Ancient Church, underground Church, amazing Bell tower. Climb up not for the faint hearted, climb down worse! Great walking around the grounds herb garden and...  more »
  • Past arrived at the hiking of the 3 Castle lane there. Here, we could well make rest and enjoy the view. It around many of the Castle and wall fragments have been preserved around which houses have been built. Come back to the Festival!

  • Beautiful castel, beautiful view.
  • One of the most beautiful castles in the area. The Bell Museum is anyway unique and impressed the Castle Church. Great, the view in the valleys is round rum.

  • Class tourist attraction, with a magnificent view up to Wetzlar! Very interesting, unfortunately min I been there when the Bell world was closed (winter). It was but not so tragic, I ran around the Castle, thereby incurred by these photos, I hope you can get you an impression that ;)

  • The Bell world is really a great idea and a great way to cool off on hot days. It's a pity that you get to drink, because the restaurant had closed.
