Blick auf die Burg Eltz

80 fabulous castles in Rhineland‑Palatinate

They are striking landmarks that you will encounter in all 10 of the state’s regions. They are proud watchmen towering above the valleys carved deep into the Rhenish Massif by the Rhine, Moselle, Ahr, Lahn and Nahe rivers and their tributaries. They stand steadfastly in the mystic forests of the Eifel, Hunsrück and Palatinate, or gaze proudly over the vastness of the Eifel, Rhine-Hesse and the Westerwald. We have selected 80 real gems for you. You can conquer them on a hike, discover them by bicycle or make an excursion of it.
