The great Rhine has been a fixture in Germanic history and culture since time immemorial. Its life-giving waters and the beautiful scenery that surrounds it has been an evergreen subject for poetry and song, as well as a prime location for some of the world's most grandiose castles. Here's a list of some of the greatest castles you'll find along the River Rhine.


Sterrenberg Castle

Located in the Rhine Valley, the Sterrenberg Castle is an impressive fortress that is perched high up in the mountains overlooking the River Rhine. It served as an estate for the Bolanden lords and is said to have been built in the 12th Century. Much of the original structure lies dilapidated. Today, a popular restaurant with a beautiful terrace operates within the castle. Regular exhibitions are also held that showcase the history of the area.
