Arriving by car

We offer all guests who wish to travel by car detailed route planning, including a sketch map, which can be printed out. This service is available throughout Europe! Simply enter your start point and follow the menu. It is only possible to bring cars into the Castle courtyard with permission of the castle manager.

ATTENTION: FRANKFURT - CASTLE ROUTE AVOIDING TRAFFIC JAMS: The A3 near Aschaffenburg still is a choke-point during rush-hour and holiday traffic especcially in the afternoon and early evening. Therefore the following diversion is recommended, as it is only 10 km longer and usually free of lorries and traffic jams:

Leave the A3 at junction 54 "Hanau", follow signs for A66 "Fulda". Continue along the A66 past Gelnhausen, then take junction 54 "Bad Orb", follow the main road through the town and on to "Jossgrund". There turn right towards "Gemünden", and reach Rieneck via Aura, Fellen and Burgsinn.

This is a particularly good trick on Friday evenings.

Parking: the two signposted car parks below the Castle are available for your use. Please do not park your car in a position where it prevents the fire brigade from gaining access. This means not parking in front of ‘No Parking’ (Halteverbot) signs, or the red-and-white barriers. Please do not obstruct the staff parking spaces in the upper car park, or the garage entrances in the lower car park.  The area in front of the rubbish bins is NOT a car park, but to allow access for the emergency services should the need arise.

Loading and unloading in the courtyard: only in exceptional cases for very heavy objects. Vehicles must then be removed from the courtyard immediately! Please carry normal luggage up to the castle.

Use of the car park is at owners’ own risk. BEW Burg Rieneck e.V. accepts no responsibility for damages.

If both car parks are full please park down in the village. There is a car park in front of Raiffeisenbank and down the hill at the roundabout near the sportsfield.
