With its romantic gardens and terraces it is situated near Assmannshausen on a rocky outcrop, 90 m above the Rhine. From there you can enjoy a picturesque view of the river. Inside the carefully and elaborately restored castle glass paintings can be admired from the 14th to 19th centuries. There are also wonderful wall and ceiling frescoes with ornate Gothic frieze from the 19th century. The castle contains a large number of antique furniture from the 17th and 19th century and original armor from the 15th century . Next to the castle is a neo-Gothic chapel with the only Prussian tomb on the Middle Rhine. Built in the late 13th century by the Mainz archbishopric as Zollburg, the purpose was to protect the area against robber barons. From the 17th century the castle fell into disrepair until it was acquired in 1823 by Prince Friedrich Wilhelm of Prussia as a ruin. He had the castle rebuilt by Schinkel. In 1975 the opera singer Hermann Hecher bought the Castle from the famliy of Hohenzollern.
