An idyllic picture-postcard castle. Viewed from the Rhine, it towers majestically over the vineyards below the romantic little town of Kaub. Gutenfels is one of the most outstanding examples of the defence and residential architecture of the
Staufen dynasty on the Rhine. The castle was given the name Gutenfels (“Good Rock”) after it was unsuccessfully besieged by Landgrave Wilhelm of Hesse in 1504.
Gutenfels Castle in Kaub is regarded as an exemplary piece of castle building and determines the landscape of the area. The Castle is in private ownership, but visits are available for groups on request. For hikers on the Rheinsteig trail, it’s only a few metres walk to Gutenfels Castle.
