    The Bell Museum is situated in the bulwark of the castle Greifenstein. There are about 50 bells with descriptions and information about how bells are produced and how you bring them to ring. It's possible to ring some of the bells yourself and not only children enjoy this!

    The Bell Museum is included in the admission of the castle (3,- adults, 1,- children), opening times are also the same.

    In the castle grounds, there's a baroque church from around 1700. Under this church you will find a gotic chapel called Katharinenkapelle that is 200 years older than the church. The chapel was build 1462 and is a big contrast to the pompous church above! From the chapel you'll reach some casemates, very interesting!

    The castle was first mentioned in 1160 and got destroyed and rebuild several times. Parts of Burg Greifenstein are nowadays ruins, but other parts are still intact. So you can climb up the towers and enjoy a beautiful view on the surroundings. There's lots to explore in these ruins and also there's a restaurant inside the castle in the vaults.

    Admission is 3,- Euro (1,- for children). Admission includes castle, church and bell museum.
    It is open daily from 10:00 to 18:00 (November until March only Saturday/Sunday afternoon).
    Guided tours are only possible for groups after a previous announcement.
