This castle sits in the most amazing position right above the Rhine with an awesome view. There is also a lot to see and learn on the inside. Should definitely visit.

We spent a day driving up the Rhein, enjoying views of castles along the way. This one, situated across the river from the village of Assmannhausen where we were staying, is the only one that we visited. Park alongside the road and there's a steep...More

This is one of my favorite castles. Small picturesque romantic castle. It is lovely to visit in the spring when the flowers are in full bloom but nice anytime of year.
