Schloss Stolzenfels

Dates and times: individually on request | Duration: 45 minutes or 2 hours

The guide

At the gateway to the UNESCO World Heritage Upper Middle Rhine Valley sits Schloss Stolzenfels - the "crown jewel of Rhine Romanticism."

Experience a guided tour of the summer residence of Frederick William IV of Prussia, which is now open to visitors from all over the world.
According to plans by the famous Berlin architect Karl Friedrich Schinkel, the former medieval castle was rebuilt into today's neo-Gothic palace. Particularly worth seeing are the historic living rooms with original castle furnishings, the Knights' Hall and the castle garden with the rose-covered pergola garden. From the Rhine terrace you can enjoy a view as far as Marksburg Castle and down the Rhine to Festung Ehrenbreitstein.

The castle can only be reached by a 20-minute steep footpath that takes you through the picturesque landscape park designed by Peter Joseph Lenné. Along the way, you will also pass the Klause, which is opened exclusively for the tour.

Tour can also be booked as a 45-minute guided tour on request. On the shortened tour, you will receive a guided tour of the palace interiors. The ascent to the castle entrance is on your own.
