General information
Gutenfels Castle in Kaub is regarded as an exemplary piece of castle building and determines the landscape of the area. The complex was erected in 1222 by the lords of Falkenstein-Münzenberg and served to secure the Rhine toll in the area, together with Pfalzgrafenstein Castle. In Kaub, the toll correspondence from the 16th century is also preserved. The city and the Castle were under siege for several weeks in 1504 by the troops of Landgrave Wilhelm von Hessen. It was probably then that the name “Gutenfels” became current for the Castle. 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.
