Land Rheinland-Pfalz Hotels: 27 reviews and 65 photos
is my Number one as it is certainly one of the very best and most exclusive castle-hotels along the river Rhine. The old castle dates back to the 10th century and today the castle is used partly as a luxury hotel and in a sidewing as a "Kolpingheim / hostel" and a hotel next to the castle.
Schlosshotel Schönburg in Oberwesel has a great terrace with a perfect view of the Rhine-valley. You have to leave your car at the parking and your luggage will be taken with a small truck to the hotel. all of the great rooms are facing the river and also the restaurant is well known for its perfect cuisine...NO train-noises here at all!
Hotel Burg Liebenstein
is an interesting hotel in Kamp-Bornhofen at the right bank of the river Rhine, about 60 km downstream from Ruedesheim or 15km upstream from Koblenz, and it offers a great panoramaview and lots of possibilities to hike.
The castle-hotel is quite remote and it offers a fews great rooms at reasonable prices - just click on the link below !
I was there in early april, the week before easter and there were just a very few guests, as the street going up is quite steep. They have a great interior with several old Iron armouries, an open fireplace and lovely furniture
Kamp-Bornhofen is about 15km upstream from Koblenz, on the right bank of the river Rhine
dates back to the 11th century. In the 13th century the castle belonged to one of the most dangerous robber-barons, and as the castle had such an important position in the Rhine-valley, the emperor decided to destruct the castle and set the robber-baron into prison. It lasted 4 years to get hold of him and he was finally "made one head shorter" , as we say it in German...
Today Castle Reichenstein is a great hotel, high above the valley and almost no noise of the train-line will get to your sleepingroom. You may also visit a museum there in another part of the castle-ruins !
Unique Qualities: And last but not least the most beautiful and most scenic Castle-Hotel along the river Rhine is a HOSTEL & Jugendherberge:
is a perfect place to stay for young people and for families ! A stay in Burg Stahleck might be the highlight for your vacation in the Rhine- and Mosel-valley, in case that you are a budget-traveller and have to search for a cheap price of your accomodation. Burg Stahleck offers a perfect panorama-view over the Rhine-valley at moderate prices - see the link to their webpage !
They have laundry-facilities for their guests and as a hostel-guest you may even use the great table-tennis at one of the terraces - see my pictures !
Burg Stahleck may be explored by everyone - you may enter the castle freely and without restrictions. !!
Directions: see the Infos above !
