Desciption of Schloss Stolzenfels

Schloss Stolzenfels Map

Schloss Stolzenfels is located on the Western bank of the Rhine this building is more of the residence than a castle. Although the earliest fortification on this mountain date back to the thirteenth century the castle that you see today was constructed in 1823 by famous architect Schinkel under commission of Kings Friedrich Wilhelm IV of Prussia. Tours are given and you can get a lot of dirt on the French and how they destroyed previous fortifications that were build here.
