Schloss Stolzenfels (Stolzenfels Castle)

Towering high above the Rhine, in the district of Stolzenfels south of Coblenz, stands the castle of the same name – Schloss Stolzenfels. The Trier Archbishop Arnold von Isenburg commissioned the construction of the castle between 1242 and 1259 as a border fortress, and then up until 1412 it was used for Rhine customs duty. It was destroyed during the Palatine War of Succession in 1689. The ruins crumbled and in 1802 were handed over to the City of Coblenz which made a gift of the castle ruins to the later Prussian King Friedrich Wilhelm IV. He had the ruin rebuilt as a summer residence and thus the classic castle, the very epitome of Rhine romance, came into being.

Viewing
