Having driven around and hiked around the area a couple of days, I can say that getting to Burg Rheinfels (2 minutes outside St. Goar) and walking around it are very easy. And the view from the top gives a spectacular view of the Rhine...More

What a great place for kids to explore (and the young at heart!). Bring a flashlight for the tunnels and explore to your heart's content!

Beautiful views over the Rhine and incredible history. Mostly ruined now but part of the castle has been transformed into a luxury hotel. Highly recommend exploring the mine tunnels with a torch: very exciting adventure.

This ruin is different from many in Germany. For a small entrance fee you can explore the castle on your own. Bring a flashlight and watch your head in the tunnels as you roam around a really big castle ruin. This is a favorite stop...More

This was an awesome place to explore for both kids and adults. There are underground mining tunnels (that require a flashlight or cell phone light), and lots of different arches and stairways. A great view of the Rhine River as well. We spent three hours...More
