Having driven around and hiked around the area a couple of days, I can say that getting to Burg Rheinfels (2 minutes outside St. Goar) and walking around it are very easy. And the view from the top gives a spectacular view of the Rhine River.
A visit to the castleruins is very nice, great views of the river Rhine too. There is a hotel,restaurant with terrace too. Also from the terrace splendid views of the town and river below. They serve lovely food. Try the traditional "Flammkuchen" A very very thin sort of pizza with bacon, onions and cheese.
I've been to Burg Rheinfels about 5 times and each time was a new experience - there was always something I had missed before. The Castle sits high atop the hill and it's a nice hike up, or drive if you're lazy like myself. The parking lot can be a bit tight, so make sure you have a smaller car... 更多
An interesting place to visit. We climbed up by foot from the town center in about 15 minutes despite being middle aged and in hot weather. The castle itself is fairly large, and one should plan on spending about 90 minutes on site to see everything. The entry fee is 5 Euros per adult, which is reasonable, but there are... 更多
This ruin is different from many in Germany. For a small entrance fee you can explore the castle on your own. Bring a flashlight and watch your head in the tunnels as you roam around a really big castle ruin. This is a favorite stop when we have students. Sankt Goar is easy to get to from Koblenz or Mainz... 更多

This castle is pretty massive and you need to have... 更多
This was an awesome place to explore for both kids and adults. There are underground mining tunnels (that require a flashlight or cell phone light), and lots of different arches and stairways. A great view of the Rhine River as well. We spent three hours running around with our two boys and they loved every minute.
We loved our visit to the Burg Rheinfels castle. It's a castle ruin rather than a furnished castle. However, you really get to walk around in the ruins and go in the tunnels that are still standing. Great views of the river and the town.
