Tucked away in a quiet, wooded valley near Robertville, Castle Reinhardstein is an attractive stone château that was built in the 14th century.
Built in 1352 by Renaud de Waimes, the castle was home to many noble families such as the Nesselrode, the Nassau and finally the counts of Metternich, who reigned over the region for more than three centuries. It fell into disrepair during the French Revolution. In the 1960s the castle was ‘rediscovered’ by a university professor, who painstakingly rebuilt it from the original plans. It is now a museum with armours, weapons and halberds, tapestries and period furniture.
The annual medieval fair has a different theme each year and activities to delight adults and children alike.
