This review is for Burg Lahneck

Despite some negative comments posted in previous reviews, i can only say that we found the owner, Herr Mischke to be friendly, always courteous and unfailingly helpful. The site is ideally situated, with spectacular views overlooking the Rhein. For exploring the valley of the Rhein and the Moselle, it could not be better. I would be happy to go back.

As with most European countries you will find that if you at least try to communicate in the language of that country the welcome is far more friendly. A bus stop a few hundred yard up the road takes you to Koblenz and from there boat and bus can be used to explore the Rhine. Koblenz has a terrible one way system which is easy to get lost in so be careful. The abiding memory is having our meal outdoors overlooking the Rhine until sunset. A good site, the bar/restaurant.

This review is for Burg Lahneck

The site is run by an elderly gentleman who unfortunately does nothing to defuse national stereotypes and is unnecessarily unfriendly and strict. That aside, we had a lovely stay despite poor weather and the site is in a lovely location with great views. The sites 'second in command' was in contrast very friendly and went out of his way for us, even appearing with a baguette one morning after we had forgotten to order our bread, having made a special trip down into the village for it. The site is well maintained and was reasonably quiet whilst we were there, meaning no queues for showers etc. Travelling with younger children we were really surprised how little there was to do in this area other than walking and cycling. German tourist information is pretty hopeless unfortunately and does nothing to help, this really surprised us expecting typical German efficiency. The much publicised swimming pool next door to the site was hardly ever open whilst we were there, it only opens when the weather is very, very good, and since the water is unheated you probably won't want to use it anyway, which is a shame because it was absolutely immaculate and spotless. Highlights included the boat trip along the Rhine to Rudesheim, Koblenz is a lovely town and we cycled up the Lahneck riverside which was very pleasant. I wouldn't bother with the fortress above Koblenz - it is large but has very little of interest really especially for non-German speakers. We would use this site again but probably only as a stopover.
