This Gothic Revival 19th century palace was completed in 1842, commissioned by Frederick William IV of Prussia. After WWII though, it was returned to the city. Far more beautiful than the Ehrenbreitstein Fortress, the palace was used by the King as a summer residence. Its guests included Queen Victoria. Today, the castle remains more or less as the King left it, full of paintings, weapons, armour and furnishings. There are some pretty gardens too, and a wonderful view over the country scape.
It’s a popular spot for weddings.

Absolutely loved it. I visited Koblenz for a day during my German exchange. The castle is beautiful. I went on it through the zip line, which i would highly recommend. My favourite part was smelling the different types of wines.
The guide also talked in a child-friendly manner about the castle's history. It's only a short, but nice visit. You also get a great view on the Rhine.
A beautiful castle. There are only guided tours. There are parking places above the castle, and you will have to climb to the castle. The views are stunning over the Rhine.
A really nice mansion, castle or how do Germans call them. They have everything sorted out those people. For me, if it looks majestic, it is a castle and this certainly looks amazing. I saw it every day when driving to Lahnstein and one morning I woke up all sad there is nobody and nothing to do in that hole so I decided to give it a try. I went there with my bike and man how it did get me happy. It is beautiful there. The forest, the castle, the little castle and bridge in the forest. Really worth visiting.
English speaking tourists beware. They will sell you a ticket for a guided tour and never tell you, that there are no English tours. They didn't even try to speak English and also were not very dog friendly. It is a beautiful sight, but read up on it before hand and yea... don't expect any service.
