Nowhere in the world you can find an area with as many castles, steep vineyard slopes and narrow alleys with half-timbered houses as in the valley of the Loreley (UNESCO world heritage site). Embedded into this beautiful landscape and located on the Rhine heights opposite the legendary "Loreleyfelsen" (rock of Loreley) is the Romantik Hotel Schloss Rheinfels. The hotel is part of the castle Rheinfels, the largest fortress ruin on the central Rhine. All 63 rooms, suites and apartments are located in the Schloss Rheinfels, the Villa Rheinfels and the apartment house at Gut Rheinfels.

The rooms and suites range between 24 to 38 square metres, the apartments have 75 square metres. All rooms are non-smoking and equipped with telephone, high-speed-internet-access, mini bar and safe. Wireless LAN is available at the conference centre.The castle was restored with the most modern equipment while keeping the preservation of the medieval surrounding in mind. A special atmosphere is created by exquisite antiques, stylish paintings, noble materials and details, warm and bright colours.The area offers plenty opportunities like hiking, play golf, taking a cruise on the River Rhine or visit the many castles, little villages and vineyards.

Stayed in this hotel at the first Christmas Day. What a view from our room. The sauna in the hotel is pretty small for the size of the hotel but Oke. Restaurant looks very nice the menu they served for Christmas was disappointing a specially when you are a vegetarian. Suggestion

Stayed here with my children during our Rhine cycle tour in July/August 2018. During this trip, we stayed mostly at campsites, but figured we should add a castle stay in this section of the Rhine. Reaching the castle itself was quite a feat with our bikes, given its great

Stayed in the annex for 5 days. Room was fine (no a/c) but housekeeping was terrible. Towels not changed, drinking glasses not replaced, ran out of toilet paper, and no chocolates, shampoo, body lotion. Hotel desk manager expressed concern but did not address the issues

I cannot say enough good things about the Romantik Hotel Schloss Rheinfels! We loved our stay here. The staff at the hotel are great - especially Rolf at the front desk who could not be more capable, efficient and friendly. He is the glue that holds the hotel together.

Can you explore the castle ruins on your own?
Yes. There is an entrance fee, but if I remember correctly it was reasonable. We toured the ruins on our own but used Rick Steves' Germany guidebook. He has an excellent narrative of the ruins and it was most helpful. The castle ruins are quite extensive so give yourself at least a couple of hours to explore. And take a small flashlight with you as some of the rooms and tunnels are quite dark (Steves recommends this is his guide.) Hope this helps and have fun!
