A famous Rhine legend relates the story of the Lorelei, a beautiful siren who was said to comb her golden hair and sing to the fishermen, luring them to crash their boats onto the rocks below.
Just across the river you can enjoy contemplating the significance of such history from the ramparts of your own castle.
Splendidly located in one of the most gorgeous spots on the entire Rhine, Romantikhotel Schloss Rheinfels offers plush comfort amid the ruins of a once mighty fortress.
Guest rooms are completely modern and tastefully decorated. Many of them are located in an annex a few minutes walk away. If you want a more authentic experience, stay in the castle. The best rooms have views of the river.
For an utterly romantic dining experience, book a table in one of the alcoves of the Auf Scharfeneck restaurant.
Great views of the Rhine and the Lorelei rock
