Top 20 premium circular walks to castles in Rhineland‑Palatinate

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. They can be discovered on a range of premium short and circular walks. These are selected, wonderful, interesting walks, most of which can be completed in a day, that offer the same quality walking experience as the premium long-distance hiking trails. They snake past the castles of Are, Eltz, Balduinseck, Schmidtburg, Hohensolm, the Reichsburg in Cochem, Ehrenburg, Niederburg, Veldenz, Dhaun, Kyrburg, Altdahn, Trifels, Fleckenstein, Marksburg, the Warring Brothers, Altwied, Neu-Bamberg Isenburg and other witnesses of a cultural history spanning centuries. You can also wander past the vines and orchards where proud vintners and down-to-earth farmers grow the raw ingredients for the culinary treats you can enjoy later.
