Description of Rieneck Castle

 

Rieneck Castle was found in 1151 by Ludwig I, Count of Loon and Rieneck. This stronghold was mostly occupied by a small garrison of soldiers. Most of the residents didn't live here due to its cramped conditions. However in a time of war all the residents in the surrounding lands would flee here. Today the stronghold is managed by German Christian Guide and Scout Association as a scouting facility. There is a small campground available just next to Rieneck Castle.
