Description of Rheinneck Castle

The first castle on a site of Rheinneck Castle was build in the 11th century, however due to its strategic location it did not escape multiple sieges and destructions. First it was captured in 1151 by king Konrad III and in 1282 by Rudolf of Habsburg. Today only the 64- foot tower and Romanesque church remain from the original medieval structures. The rest of castle was added in 1832 by Joseph von Lassaulx. Today it houses museum and restaurant that are operational between April and October.
