Hecher Family and our diligent castle ghosts
In our attractive castle museum shop you cannot only find refreshments and snacks, but also lovely gift ideas.
Look forward to toys and childrens' books covering the theme "Castles and Knights", medieval weapons and clothes, calligraphy-sets, romantic postcards, the legendary castle wine as well as champagne and many other beautiful things for children and adults!
For our young visitors we also offer a castle guidebook for children - Flo, the bat and Pinot, our cat of the castle, take you on an exciting and informative journey through the castle.
The history of the castle dates back to the 13th century, when it was used as a toll castle. In the 17th century, the castle fell apart and turned into a ruin. In 1823, Prince Friedrich Wilhelm of Prussia purchased the ruin and had it rebuilt in the style of the 19th century Romanticism. Due to constant succession, the castle remained in property of the Hohenzollern Family until 1975. On 7 November 1975, the Hecher Family bought Rheinstein Castle – since then, the castle is owned by our family and our whole passion!
