The Rhineland Sights

Burg Thurant

  • Castle/Palace/Chateau

Updated 11/14/2013

Fodor's Review

This 12th-century castle towers over the village and the Burgberg (castle hill) vineyard. Wine and snacks are served in the courtyard; castle tours include the chapel, cellar, tower, and a weapons display. Allow a good half hour for the climb from the riverbank. Call ahead in winter to make sure it's open.
