Description

At the time when Count Franz-Georg von Metternich-Ochsenhausen sold Reinhardstein Castle in 1812, its fate seamed sealed, as it was only used as a stone quarry. 150 years later, Professor Overloop was delighted about what had remained of this building. In 1970, he started rebuilding the ruin stone by stone. He used similar buildings in the adjacent Eifel as a model. Nowadays, Reinhardstein Castle is back on its rocky promontory and surveys the area, just as it did in its times of prosperity.

Inside the castle, one could visit a considerable collection of furniture, weapons and tapestry.
