Rheinfels Castle

Rheinfels, the largest ruined castle on the Rhine, provides a wealth of information regarding the art of fortification, particularly during the Late Renaissance period. It was built in 1245 by Count Dieter V of Katzenelnbogen, becoming his family seat and the scene of lively cultural activities. In the 16th and 17th centuries the Hessian landgraves converted the building to form both a residene and a fortress. It was destroyed in 1796-1797. The ruins of the medieval castle (a huge cellar with an immense barrel vault) together with the subterranean passages of the fortress are highly impressive.
