Oberwesel and Castle Schonburg

by Phillipt78

Does the castle allow touring? Please give opening times and admission price.

Re: Oberwesel and Castle Schonburg

by Trekki

The castle is not public ground but a hotel. As far as I know it cannot be visited except as a hotel guest. But you can have meals and coffee in the restaurant.
That's the homepage of the hotel:


Travel Tips for Oberwesel

Oberwesel--so many towers!

by wadekorzan

Oberwesel was once a so-called "free imperial city". This meant that they were allowed to mint their own currency, and the town became very very wealthy. For this reason it had to be very well fortified. They did this by building a city wall encircling the city, complete with a great number of watchtowers. This town became the best fortified city in the Middle Rhine area, and today it has the most complete city wall of any village in the Rhineland. It also has more remaining watchtowers than any other village--16 in total. The most famous watchtower is called the "Ox Tower". it is the tallest of the 16, and is now used a light beacon for river traffic.

Rhein in Flammen - an annual festivity

by globetrott

Rhein in Flammen is a special event during the summerseason with ships-parades, fireworks, wine-fests and other celebrations at many villages along the river Rhine. All of the villages will be lighted, Big bonfires will be burning at most of the castles and mountaintops along the river and fireworks will make the parade a special event, attracting thousands of people watching it from the banks of the river or preferably from one of the participating ships. During the weekend of "Rhein in Flammen" you will hardly get any hotelrooms, except that you reserve them a long time in advance !
