Suspended between heaven and earth on its rocky spur, Reinhardstein Castle blends into this forested landscape that is the Warche Valley.
It is on this unassailable site that the fortress was built in the 14th century by the lord of this place, Renaud de Waimes. During the following centuries, Reinhardstein changed hands among several families before falling to Count of Metternich in 1812 who sold his property to... demolishers. In the 1970s, Professor Overloop saved this patrimony by rebuilding it exactly as it was. He used rare 14th century documents to reconstruct the towers and parapet walks. It was a great success.
Today, a tour of the castle invites you to immerse yourself in the life of lords of the Middle Ages. All along this travel back in time, discover a large collection of armour, weapons and tapestries as you go from one room to the next. You can also take an electric scooter ride in the area.
The annual medieval fair has a different theme each year and activities to delight adults and children alike.
