"Rietburgbahn - Chairlift to Rietburg Ruin" Edenkoben Things to Do Tip by Kathrin_E

Edenkoben Things to Do: 14 reviews and 55 photos


Of course Edenkoben has its castle ruin, Rietburg on the mountain top above Villa Ludwigshöhe. There is not much left of the castle, the greatest attraction is the view of the Rhine Plain. The easiest way to reach the top is the chairlift which departs just behind Villa Ludwigshöhe.

There is also a hiking trail which zigzags up the slope underneath the chairlift. Walking time is approximately 45 minutes.

I have to admit that nothing and no one would persuade me to ever use that chairlift because I'm scared of heights and would panic in that thing. In other words, I did not go. But I want to mention it here because readers might be interested and because mine is so far the only page about Edenkoben on VT.
