This castle was EPIC. There are so many things to see and little rooms to explore. The ruins are extremely well maintained and our kids had fun exploring everything. It is slightly dangerous if your littles are daredevils, so keep a close eye on them.

The Altdahn Castle is one of the best castles we visited in the region. The views are amazing and there are many little hidden areas to climb and discover. Not very busy so you feel like you have the place to yourself!

Altdahn castle is easily accessible by car from the downtown following the signs. There is a small parking under the castle, just about 500 m far from the entrance. I spent nice 2 hours discovering well preserved rooms, climbing to the towers and enjoying beautiful...More

Romantic ruin overlooking Dahn - not too much of a climb. The best views are accessed by clambering up a narrow ladder to the top of one of the surviving towers. Great for adventurous kids and adults. Not much shelter if wet other than a...More

Interesting looking castle that is a little hard to get to, but will be worth it once you're there. Also recommend the little towns nearby (particularly Hinterweidenthal) and their fruit markets!
