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.

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
