In 1823 the ruined Vautsberg Castle and its rock were acquired by
Friedrich Ludwig Prince of Prussia who erected Burg Rheinstein, the
first new castle of the Rheinromantik era. He entertained guests here,
including Queen Victoria of England and Czarina Alexandra Feodorovna.
The castle’s interior contains precious stained glass windows (dating
from 1500), frescoes, a Renaissance fireplace and some fine, historical
furniture. The romantic castle garden is a true gem among the gardens of
the Middle Rhine.
