Reichenstein Castle, Trechtingshausen

Burg Reichenstein in Trechtinghausen
Burg Reichenstein, Trechtinghausen

This large castle is a fine example of a reconstructed castle in the neo-Gothic style. The original Schildmauer – a strong defence or “shield” wall built across the only line of approach to a castle on a mountain or spur - is particularly impressive.

Reichenstein Castle houses the largest collection of cast iron stove plates in Rhineland-Palatinate and the displays include 1200 hunting trophies from four continents, weapons, armour, porcelain and furniture dating from the 16th to the 19th century.
