We recently moved to Germany and this is the first castle on the list to visit. Beautiful views of the village below, military is free, and the staff is friendly. Pretty cool to walk around and see something so old with such history.

Nestled above Landsthul in Germany, this old ruin is worth a stop. It has a restaurant make sure to have a bite or drink. Cost was very cheap. If you have 1-2 hrs to kill make it a point to stop at this lovely ruin.

Lots of trails and often times events going on here. A nice little café and a wonderful view of landstuhl. The castle is easy to get to with limited parking for the most part.

These castle ruins are interesting architecturally, however, the available 'tour' is somewhat lacking. Very close to Landstuhl, however so worth the drive up the hill/mountain.

These ruins provide a lovely view of Landstuhl and the area below. I understand they offer concerts and plays during the summer months.

Fun place to take company nearby... they even have concerts and activities here! Neat venue for an American! The restaurant next to it has excellent home made soups and food!

Good example of history, sits above the town, there is a little snack bar/beer garden on site as well.
