Worth visit
Sep 2020
A bit hidden away in a forest with a bit of a drive to get there, but worth the visit. A bit of a hike up from the parking area, but the place is very well maintained and has good views. Simple food in the courtyard.

Lovely castle
Aug 2019
We visited this small castle after reading some good reviews and we're glad we went. We wanted to see the castle by ourselves because our kids don't want to hang around waiting for a guide to finish his or her story (and they don't understand German), but it was with guide only. Luckily, because this guide made the castle come alive with all his stories and we were very entertained. The views from the top are wonderful and the castle itself is fun and interesting to see. We had lunch beforehand at the Seehof at a little lake nearby, but you can also eat at the castle restaurant (it smelled terrible inside but you can sit outside on the terrace too).

Castle Restaurant Review
Aug 2019
We ate lunch here on a Tuesday after exploring the castle. We chose this restaurant more out of convenience than anything else. There's sunny terrace seating with more seating inside. We took a chance and sat on the terrace. There were some smokers but it wasn’t too bad. We each had Flammkuchens. This was the first time we had eaten them since it was our first trip to Alsace. We were not disappointed. Both were very tasty. The traditional German menu does offer a couple of veggie options in addition to veggie flammkuchens. Service was very friendly but the food was a little slow in coming out despite the restaurant not being that crowded. Prices are average. We would eat here again but probably would choose to eat inside in the castle’s old banquet hall.

A historic find...
Sep 2018 • Couples
The Berwarststein is a rock castle, where the rooms, passages and stairs are carved out of the rock. It was built sometimes around 1100 to 1152. During the 13th century the castle was used as a base for raids and plunder by robber barons. Today the castle is open to visitors.

Truly amazing
Aug 2018
Burg Berwartstein is one of those rare places, a truly historic building, yet still a family home where the residents love to show it off to people. It has so much to offer at so many levels. A problem is that the tours of this incredible building are usually conducted in German. Apart from the fascinating historic features the views from the terrace are outstanding

Lovely views from the top
Aug 2018 • Couples
It was wet day, so we decided to go for a ride and visit Berwartstein Castle. No tour in English was available but the guide did explain the history of the castle and explained some of the rooms were locked as people live within the castle.
Within the castle are various torture chambers an armory, a large well and a wooden catapult and battering ram can be found in the garden.. The walls are covered with the various coats of arms over the centuries belonging to the different family members. There is a great hall where feats would have taken place but is now the restaurant. Apparently they will arrange an atmospheric reception with a torchlight tour through the mysterious castle complete with the ghost.

€5Self Guided Tour

You can drive up pretty close to this one. Well preserved, and had a nice gift shop. They had a self guided tour for €5 which is worth it.

Great fortress with awesome view
May 2018 • Friends
This fortress is still a residence for people who are living here. Even by walking to the fortress you get a first outside impression. In the fortress you can get an impression about midieval times. The guide explains all history about the fortress. Also nice with families.

Fun castle to visit, and it is an easy 10 minute hike. (If that)
Mar 2017 • Couples
My wife and I really enjoy this area on the border of France. It is roughly an hour south of Kaiserslautern, Germany and there are some great hikes just a short drive from this castle. You can see the ruins of Château fort de Fleckenstein 13 kilometers away, or Burg Drachenfels 5 kilometers away. I think Burg Berwartstein makes the perfect place to finish a day of hiking and exploration since the other castles are not in as great shape as Burg Berwartstein. We enjoyed lunch here, and the people were very friendly which made for a nice conclusion to our day.
You have a great view from the top of the castle, and the cost is a very reasonable 5 euro.
We want to hike the area some more so we will be back.
