This castle is almost fully restored and wonderful to visit. The walk up from the parking lot is a bit rough though. The castle is not too big or small with a crypt and chapel. The restaurant has wonderful views of the Rhine with little...More

Absolutely not! Situated on a rocky ridge, Burg Rheinstein rises approximately 270 feet above the Rhine River in the Loreley Valley, and it is almost a climb, not a stroll! You'll be dragging the stroller not pushing it.
