This exceeded my expectations.
I came here mostly because I wanted to visit Burg Rheinstein, but to my surprise I liked Burg Reichenstein better than Burg Rheinstein.
The highlight for me was walking in the museum area (only outside, you can't go inside after closing time) alone in the dark with the big moon and stars above after closing time - felt magical!
But I also loved little details in my room like black old-fashioned light switches, and the free cookies in the afternoon tasted wonderful and gave a cozy feeling.
Best bed I have ever slept in!
Bacon for breakfast, which is something you don't get too often in Germany.

If I am to mention anything negative, the staff in the dining room didn't all understand English, which caused a few problems, and it was annoying that we were not allowed to eat or drink at the laid tables outside during the day, but I don't know if it's always like that.

We (a couple plus dog) stayed here for 2 nights in the beginning of August and we really enjoyed our stay. Needless to say that the location is gorgeous! It was wonderful to wake up in the morning and look out of the window at the Rhine. The room itself was small, but very clean and cozy, with a big and modern bathroom and a great shower. They even provided a doggy bed and some snacks, which was a nice touch. The restaurant where breakfast is served is beautiful, but the food is pretty basic: some buns, fried eggs, cheese and jam, granola and so on. So, good, but nothing super amazing. I took one star less because of the sleep quality, there is a railroad next to the castle and the trains get pretty loud, but I'm a light sleeper, my husband didn't mind it that much. They also have pictures and names of their ancestors (I assume) on the walls, which I found to be a very cool idea. I'm not sure if we'll be back again, but I can certainly recommend it, it's a nice experience to sleep and dine in a castle.

A beautifully maintained castle on the Rhine River, the Burg Reichenstein has a fantastic museum you can walk through on your own, complete with a working bowling, alley and even a costume room where you can dress up in medieval garb. The adjoining hotel is wonderful and makes for a perfect wedding venue. The staff here is absolutely incredible and makes the overall experience five-star.

If you are looking at a cool castle to stay on the Rhein, although this is a cool castle, for the same price I have to recommend Schloss Rheinfels. This is because for the same price they have larger rooms, steam room, saunas, a pool, and an elevator. The food is great for the breakfast and afternoon tea. This was the good part. I felt the front desk seemed annoyed when I asked if I can get extra pillows. As well, I asked 8f there were a larger room available and they also seemed annoyed at that. The front desk did not give me a warm feeling. The room was quite small. It advertised a range of room sizes for the option I selected and the size I got was in that range, but the room size and configuration with the bathroom being part of the main room felt cramped. The desk was small and the stool was uncomfortable. Considering the price and considering it was the same price as Scloss Rheinfels, I don’t feel I got value for the price and this is my main complaint. The castle and being allowed to go to the castle freely was really cool.

We are a family of 4 with 2 kids aged 17 and 21. We hadn’t originally planned to visit Reichenstein because Rick Steves doesn’t feature it in his book, but the KD boat tour recommended it, so we decided to try it. It was well worth seeing—and eating. You can drive to the entrance and park (no long, steep climb unless parking is full). They provide a self-guided audio tour in English and German. The audio guide is detailed and informative. It has a dramatic element with voices representing past family members discussing the history of the rooms, which can feel a bit over the top but probably makes it more interesting, especially for younger visitors. We took 2 hours to see the entire castle because there’s so much outside and inside—you can even climb up to the battlements for a view of the Rhine. The castle is well restored and presented. It’s preserved as it was in the early 20th C. You get a sense of the family members, their history, and the way a significant, industrial family would have lived at the time. Besides Burg Eltz, it was our favorite castle experience. They have an excellent gourmet restaurant on site that serves both lunch and dinner. Part of the estate is a hotel, but we did not see the accommodations.

We stayed there for two nights at our trip to Germany. We really look forward to staying at the castle, only when we realised that we are not actually staying in the castle but in an "add on" building outside the castle. The rooms are small with no lifts. We had lots of luggage, because we were on our Europe trip for 7 weeks. There were no one offering to help us moving the luggage to our room. We had dinner there, the food was good but it took long time for the food to arrive and we were really hungry.
The second night we were there, there was a wedding going on. and as a result, we couldnt even go down for a drink. We were told the dinning area was all reserved by the wedding party. We were shocked as we have a baby with us and the room was so small and it was hard for our baby to stay in the room at all time.
It would have been nice if they told us there will be an event going on that night before hand.
Lastly, we could not even walk in to the castle groud. As a hotel guest, we thought we would be able to look around the castle (like the road leading to the castle for free) etc...but no we go to wait for the opening hour and pay like everyone else. That's the whole point of staying in a castle so we could look around.
The whole experience is a total let down as this hotel has so much to offer and it almost fail us in every single way.
ps. We had to ask for wifi password and you need to get a new one everyday.

Worth a visit self explore and with self explanation. Amazing architecture. Known as Falkenburg and under UNESCO world heritage. I wonder how many Antlers collection were display in this castle. This castle occurs in 1213 more than 800 years.

You stay in a small building down from castle. Our room had a bad smell coming from the shower. Tv did not work. Did not let us eat breakfast where we could see the river. Put us in a small dark room. Even if you stay at hotel they charge you for the museum, which was a waste. Mostly just antler. Pictures are of the walls in our room and the floor where we had to eat breakfast.

A very nice room with a balcony outside, and bed on a mezzanine. Nicely equipped - but there is no air conditioning and although it wasn't that hot a day we were roasting. The evening we stayed the restaurant was closed at short notice for an external party - beware, some restaurants that appear close are on the other side of the Rhine and the nearest ferry stops at 2000. We eat in Rudesheim, which was also on the opposite bank, but hS a ferry from Bingen Running until midnight.
Breakfast was very good. We would probably look elsewhere if in the area again - it wasn't clear if they really wanted to be a hotel!

My husband and I stayed here to celebrate our anniversary. I wanted to feel like a queen staying in her castle. The hubby did a great job booking this for us, with no real knowledge of Germany. He'll have to up his game next year.

Don't park below - drive up the side road into the castle grounds. Unload your bags, check in, and the staff will direct you to a parking area. While we are on the topic of bags - there are no elevators that we saw, so pack lightly.

We checked in and then spent time exploring the castle and grounds. If you haven't been to a historic castle, bring your walking shoes and a bottle of water. Remember, they were built into hillsides to make it difficult for the enemy to enter/attack. That means hills. And steps. Lots of steps. There's no time limits to the exploration experience, so go slow and enjoy!

They are still restoring parts of the castle, but we found that fascinating. A mix of partial ruins and restored buildings was awesome.

Our room was clean and surprisingly modern. If you are looking for a "castley " room, this probably won't be the place for you. But, if you are willing to enjoy the mix of old and new, you'll be happy. We had a castle suite, which was 2 stories. Bed up top, shower and water closet on the lower level with 2 chairs. TV was upstairs, and all in German, except for the news. We couldn't even get closed captions in English. I suppose you really aren't there for the room, though.

Bathroom is in two parts. First is a water closet. It is narrow, but functional. Second is a shower and sink. Shower was fabulous! Modern tile, hot water, and a great option between rain shower and a more traditional shower feel.

Bed was firm. Plenty of head room in the loft. Stairs are typical German- narrow and space conscious.

There was no A/C in the room, not did we expect to find it - most of Germany doesn't have A/C. The main floor was quite comfortable (temperature), while the upper floor was warm. In our opinion, a fan would have been the perfect addition to help even out the temperature.

The staff was fantastic! Super friendly and spoke English fairly well!

There is a restaurant on the main floor. Do NOT skip breakfast!! It was worth every euro!

I hope we can come back in the future and see what renovations have occurred since our visit! Until then, wishing you castle dreams and the most perfect croissant to awake to!

The castle is far from towns. You can drive right to it. The hotel is adjacent but not connected to the castle. You still have to pay to enter the castle even if you stay in the hotel. There are no elevators and quite a bit of walking required here to see things and get into the hotel room. Great atmosphere but not the most convenient.

The rooms we stayed in were upstairs above the restaurant - which is in a building just at the entrance to the castle. I’m not sure whether this is the same age as the rest of the castle - certainly our room was characterful but modern. Why not ring the castle and ask?

Mit der Eintrittskarte waren wir im Innen-und Außenbereich. Separieren kann man das leider nicht. Die kostenlosen Audio Guides beschreiben alle Punkte sehr gut und nehmen die Historie auf. Der Preis ist auf dem ersten Blick etwas hoch, aber alles ist sehr gepflegt und ich bin auch davon überzeugt, dass die Gelder wieder auch investiert werden.
