  • Located on the mountain with a great overview of Solingen.Burg and the lower Castle, all restored and enriched in the 19th century. Guided tour highly recommended, one hears and sees much complementary. Currently being renovated, an elevator for the disabled come in 3 years in part of the renovation. Recommended a visit to the restaurant.

  • We were today to visit to the Castle, to give us the performance of George's Knight to look at. Although the weather was good and we were at lunch time here, we've got still a parking lot on the P2. Around the Castle, there was much to see. There was a lot for the children and the presentation was great. Liked us very well. Eating and drinking are also in each price category and for every taste. The ticket prices were also moderate. As highly recommend day trip. P.S.: P1 not what, the P2 but costs.

  • Beautiful medieval castle with a romantic, steep gondola leading up from the base of the hill to the peak. Quaint and educational, this place is fun for the entire family. We saw a medieval style theater performance, where local actors told a story of a young farmer turned warrior who wanted to protect his family's honor in battle. A great way to spend an afternoon!
  • Great little find while on holiday. Easy to navigate through with special little rooms to explore. Amazing history, some places undergoing restoration. The finish product should be amazing.
  • Really love this place. Was our 2nd visit. Well kept and interesting.
  • Nice location for events like weddings. Great food (made by Schützenhaus Remscheid)
  • Closed on Monday's, came back the following Sunday only find out at the inside entrance they are closing at 2 for a private party. No notice on the web site or at the gate. Beautiful scenery outside, mostly all restaurants, the main castle is still under remodeling. It would have been lovely to see especially traveling over 8000 miles to get here.
