Burgruine Rheinfels | St. Goar

The ruin of Burg Rheinfels,built in 1245, is the largest of its kind on

the Rhine. It is a prime example of the 14th century castles of the

Counts of Katzenelnbogen and of the castle and fortification

architecture of the Landgraves of Hessen-Kassel between the 16th and

18th centuries. In 1692 Rheinfels was the only fortress on the left bank

of the Rhine to withstand the troops of Louis XIV, but in 1794 it had

to be handed over to the French revolutionary army. The ruins of the

medieval castle and the underground passageways of the fortress are very

impressive.
