Schloss Stolzenfels, Koblenz

4.2
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.

  • The castle is interesting. Nothing too special, but so worth the visit, especially the view of the river Rhine. The guide who gave us the information of the castle was nothing friendly with my colleagues who did not speak German. Only gave a small guide for that accompany the visit and when I was translating I still asked for low q was disturbing. Castle well, very bad service!

  • exceedingly polite friendly and helpful team you can get quiet time and absorb the mood of the centuries. The smell of the Knights in the nose moving. Because the parking lot is guarded, can be well a hike following the visit of the Castle. Very clean toilet.

  • A few minutes by car from Koblenz, this beautiful Lodge is located. Admission is a bargain with 5 Euro including leadership. It was particularly nice that one is not driven for example in Neuschwanstein Castle, like a herd of cattle through the estate as. When we were there, the size of the Group was just 6 people. So by running over one cannot speak as definitely also.

  • The way up to the castle is one of the highlights. The drawbridge is way smaller and impressive than expected. There is no cafe, no souvenir shop and no food available at all. The entrance fee includes both the gardens and the guided tour. They should offer the option of a cheaper ticket for only the gardens as we did not care for the tour, which is only in German. Also, the employees could be a bit more sympathetic with children that do not speak German. This guy was on the verge of being rude. I do not recommend this castle, there are others that are more worth it.
  • Beautiful neo-gothic castle with nice view to the Rhine. There is also a lovely castle garden (part of the tour). The guide - with many historical facts - is in German, but they also provide English booklets. You have to take a cca 10-15 minutes walk up to the castle and after the castle it is also worth to make a walking tour in the surroundings - there is another part of the castle a little lower, park and little waterfalls, and the nature itself..
  • Very picturesque castles tucked away in the hills. Can only be viewed by guided tours, and unfortunately they don't seem to offer tours in English. Still worth visiting for the architecture and artwork.
  • I love castles! The river view was amazing. Enjoyed walking up to the top of the hill to get there.
  • A Beautiful Castle, over looking the Rhine, Beautifully preserved, lots of flowers and garden features add to the summer feel. There is another castle in the grounds, with a large forest & Mountains to walk, make sure you take a map Take your time and enjoy the castle, 1.5hours inside, the tour of the castle is in german, they give you an english guide book if you dont speak german. 5€ Entrance
