  • A nice way to spend the afternoon. The ruins are very scenic, and the view of Landstuhl from the top is quite breathtaking. 
  • Lovely view from the upper levels. Not much to read as it is only partly standing. Interesting and easy to get around. Walking to it hard if groups are there as car parking down or up the hill and har...  more »
  • A good 2 hr visit close enough to other castel ruins in the area the outside cafe/bar has good food.

  • This is an iconic place to see if you're visiting Landstuhl, the castle is beautiful as well as the view from the top. There's also a nice restaurant up there with a good food and drinks selection. They only take cash,so unless you'd like a hike down to the town,make sure you have some on you.
  • Great view of Landstuhl, can eve see the air Base from the top. Easy to get into, not extremely easy to find (you have to go through a neighborhood), and a bit small but still very cool.
  • Who does't love a castle ruin. The restaurant served us some of the best food we've had in Germany yet.
  • Very quiet. Easy to just tour the grounds on your own. Small fee to go inside. Small café on site.
  • Amazing views with a great little cafe to get eats or ice cream. Bring Cash!
