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.

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

We drone up to the top. It was charming and nice, but there is only a hotel in there and short walks. The castle is better admired from a distance. There is a small museu, and a shop with a very friendly owner. Very small...More
