(140+ reviews on the web)
Castle
Originally constructed in 1259 and perched above the Rhine River, Schloss Stolzenfels is a classic castle in a fairytale setting. The fortress' ornate architecture is the result of several iterations and reconstructions over the past eight centuries. The neo-Gothic-style towers and battlements were intended to represent an archetypal medieval structure. Hike your way up a winding, sign-posted path to the castle's seat, and explore both the grounds and the luxurious interior through a guided tour. Don't miss the sweeping view of the surrounding valley and city of Koblenz. A visit to Schloss Stolzenfels represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Koblenz family vacation planner to plot your vacation.

  • Unfortunately, this has been denied us. After we parked available parking on the Valley the right stairs went off eir. Our dog was there. We took the fully-enclosed Zragetasche for him to be careful. Above, finally arrived after a steep climb, we wanted to visit the castle with dog in the completely closed bag. The admission was denied us. Was on the why, because dog in the safe bag, only patzig with &gt; This is also < replied. We left the Castle and at the bottom, on the plate for motorists, was then dehr small to see the dog signs. Real a bottomless impudence!

  • Arrived too late for the tour we could still gaze at the scenery and enjoy the walk to enter the Castle. Undoubtedly rather than restoration we can speak of real "historical review" ... interesting nonetheless. The next time we visit also the inside.

  • I just love this place. The location and architecture are definitely something really special. This Neo-Gothic castle is one of the most amazing "Rheinromantik" buildings. You can clearly see the distinct style and signature of one of the most important architects of the early 1800 Friedrich August Stüler. Definitely worth a trip!
  • Great architecture along the strech of Rhine River.
  • Lots of history, great tour and an amazing view
  • Beautiful castle with some lovely views. Small fee to get into the grounds and that includes a walking tour. The tour is obviously in German, but they provide a translation booklet. Couple of areas are off limits, which is a shame.
  • Amazing castle just 10 min away from the city...
