Ruins of a castle on a mountain by the river. Very beautiful sight from every angle. There is a small museum inside and a good restaurant, which is part of the hotel just beside the ruins.

This is an ideal stop during a drive or cruise along the Rhine River. The castle ruins are reached with a 2 Euro shuttle ride up the mountain from Sankt Goar - or one can walk it. The views of the Rhine valley, other castles,...More

We visited Rheinfels on a weekday morning. There were a few school groups, but overall it didn't feel too crowded. The admission is reasonable - I think it was 7 euros for adults. The museum has some really cool artifacts and a good historic overview...More
