A boy runs through an archway at Burg Rheinfels in St. Goar, which has a commanding view of the Rhein River and two other castles in the area. The castle was built in 1245, and despite several battles at the site, still has comparatively well preserved ruins. The castle also boasts tunnels, a tower and a museum, as well as several other attractions. Visitors can receive written guides to the castle in English when they buy tickets. A four-star hotel is located next door.
