One of the most exciting castle experiences in the Rhine Valley.

- during the week guided tours upon request


Built in 1245 by Count Dieter V of Katzenelnbogen in St. Goar, Rheinfels Castle today represents the largest castle and fortress ruin on the Middle Rhine. As one of the few bulwarks on the Rhine, it was unsuccessfully besieged in both the Thirty Years’ War and the Palatine War of Succession, and not destroyed. So, the fortress was able to bear up against a 28,000-strong French army. It’s particularly its status as a residential castle and development to an extensive fortification that make Rheinfels Castle among the most important fortified sites on the Middle Rhine. Visits to the imposing ruins and various tours are possible; tasteful accommodation can be found in the romantic hotel adjacent. Hikers can reach Rheinfels Castle directly via the RheinBurgenWeg trail.

The castle is open for you daily from 09:00 to 18:00 (closing time 17:00).
The museum is open again from the Easter weekend.
In case of adverse weather conditions, the castle will remain closed for the safety of our guests - this will be decided accordingly on a daily basis.

Guided tours are offered at the following times:
- Sat, Sun, holidays each 11 am, 1 pm and 3 pm
- on weekdays guided tours on request
