Such a beautiful grand castle. I have never seen anything like it. They offer a little shuttle bus that takes you down/up the steep hill to the castle. They have restaurants with delicious food and a great view of the mountains. It was 10 euro a person for the tour and they even offered English tours. It was a great experience.

We've lived here in Europe for 3 years and it seems there is ALWAYS construction, restoration and scaffolding on every old tourist attraction. Otherwise nice...

Great little walk that unfortunately took us longer than it should have... Google maps took us on an alternative (and longer) path. Well worth it. Nice walk. Great castle.

This place was beautiful !! It was far from frankfurt centre so we decided to rent a car and drive there. We decided to go before it opens to take scenery photos! This place was stunning!! If you are not a strong walker , there is a shuttle bus that takes you to the castle from the parking lot for €2. I advise you to go early if you want photos with minimal people in the background! You can also get a guided tour to see inside the castle that lasts roughly 40 minutes . Otherwise, you will not be able to enter the castle. There is a large collection of items from the olden days , worth to see and lots to learn! There is also a cafe there which you can dine with a view, but it is outdoors so be mindful when you go ! Also, photography is not allowed inside the castle ( in the guided tour) so if your main purpose is to take photos you may not want the tour but to me it is worth it as you learn a lot about the history of the castle

Be aware that outside of the summer season (may-october) the bus from downtown Moselkern does not run, so a 5 km walk or 36 EUR taxi ride each way. Shuttle bus from parking lot run, but charges a fee.
Tour in English was Great, but too bad pictures are not allowed.
