Rheinstein Castle

Rheinstein Castle


UNESCO World Heritage in the Upper Middle Rhine Valley

Built at the beginning of the 14th century, Rheinstein Castle near Trechtinghausen had many names over time: Burg Voitsberg, Vaitzburg, Faustburg, Fatzberg and finally, after the end of extensive restoration in 1829, Burg Rheinstein. Since 2002 it has been part of the UNESCO World Heritage Upper Middle Rhine Valley and the Burgundy Garden, which is well worth seeing as a model of medieval garden art, is part of the World Heritage Garden Route. Although Rheinstein Castle is privately owned, it can be visited. Especially the view from the Rhine Tower and the adjacent terraces as well as the restored architectural paintings and stained glass windows are worth a visit. It also houses a restaurant, a tower apartment and a vacation apartment, as well as rooms for civil weddings.
