A beautiful castle overlooking the A Rhine. Built in 1149 . Was changed and building took place throughout history. Today hosts a beautiful hotel and a small museum illustrating the issue of castles on Rhine.

Wonderful old city with timber frame houses. Castle sits high above the city. This is a difficult hike for a view of the town and the Rhine.

If you've always fancied living in a castle, then this is the closest thing to actually experiencing that dream!! Romantic, historical, well-preserved, tastefully modernised where needed (phones, electricity etc), with an overabundance of atmosphere and class, this is an amazing place to stay. Certainly not...More

I stayed @ Schoenburg Castle the summer before college, and it made such an impression I brought my family back decades later. They've only improved on what is a truly unique experience, with parts of the castle dating to the 11th century and even the...More

This was one of the best hotel experiences we ever had. The hotel is a castle fortress and has a very authentic feel. You can walk around the battlements and visit the tower museum, and wander up and down staircases inside and wander through beautifully...More

The castle sits high atop a cliff overlooking Oberwesel, so its over a mile (2-3 km) with the last half all narrow mountain switch-backs. I suggest contacting the castle staff via the email provided on website, as they... More
