Located in Traben-Trarbach in the federal state of Rhineland-Palatinate in Germany. The Grevenburg Castle was built around 1350 by Count Johann III, a son of the Countess Loretta, and was the ancestral seat of the counts of Sponheim until 1437. During the turmoil of the wars in the 17th and 18th centuries, the castle changed hands 13 times. In 1734, it was taken and destroyed by the French.
The walk up to Trarbach is challenging, steep but pleasant. The scenery that passes through the vineyard, then to the Kreigerdenkmal is absolutely calming and beautiful. You can stop here to consider the memorial, enjoy the view and have a drink of water. The path then ascends through forest, to the castle ruins.
This path will take you around an hour to do the climb, but you should stop for photos and a rest, along the way. Once you get to the top part you can enjoy some refreshments at the cafe or read some interesting historical information in multiple languages.
