We enjoyed this castle more than Burg Eltz, which is also a nice castle (but more expensive once you pay for the 10E entrance fee, 2E parking fee, and any 2E shuttles rides you might take to and from the parking lot). Burg Thurant has...More

Our favorite castle in both the Rhine and Moselle Valley. Really interesting description of each room. If you are going to do one castle in Germany this is it!

Impressed by the Burg Thurant - you can not miss this impressive castle, which is on the hill above the town of Elkan. The castle was built on Roman ruins probably in the late 12th century, making it one of the oldest castles along the...More

This is a smallish castle, the closest to Koblenz of the many castles by Mosel. You can drive all the way up to the castle and park practically next to it. We actually liked this one best of all the castles that we visited. Beats...More

Easy drive to the top and a short walk to the castle, but not much to see, well the entrance fee of 2Eu warns you before the time. The views from the castle is superb and allows one to capture stunning pictures.

On our tour around the Rhin and Mossel decided to stop at Alken for lunch and visit the Burg Thurant. Did not expect much, as visited so many castles during our trip, but this was kind of a surprise, perhaps not expected, less known than...More
