From the Hunsrück (A61 and B327)
Take the A61 motorway from Ludwigshafen to Cologne and exit at Boppard. Turn right onto the B327 (Hunsrückhöhenstraße). After 800 m take the left exit at the roundabout in Buchholz towards Brodenbach/Ehrenburg (this is the first exit on the right when coming from Koblenz). Follow this road for 6.5 km and then take the entrance to the Ehrenburg on the left.
From the River Moselle
In Brodenbach turn onto the K72 and drive up Postberg, following the hairpin bends up the hill. After 5 km the entrance to the Ehrenburg is on the right.
Please note: the K72 is only suitable for cars/vans with a maximum height of 2.5 m and a length of up to 6 m!
If you fancy exploring the countryside on horseback, Grenzenlos Wanderreiten has plenty to offer in the way of pony trekking. The Ehrenberg Sternritte or star rides, for example, not only include daily forays out into the countryside but also an unforgettable stay at the Ehrenburg for several days.
A good hike, an exciting geocache, suspense on the local via ferrata or a gentle ride atop a horse are all perfect for a weekend in the great outdoors. There’s something for everyone here: families, children and seniors.

One particularly scenic hike takes you right up to the gates of the Ehrenburg: the Ehrenburg Mountain Canyon Trail. You can find details of this and other hiking routes on the Traumpfad Trails website at Traumpfaden Rhine-Moselle-Eifel.
The unspoilt beauty of the former seat of the knights of Ehrenberg, spectacular in its wild, romantic setting, has many attractions: visitors both great and small are totally enthralled by the bold defiance of its tall towers, by its many romantic nooks and crannies and by the magic exerted during its gradual awakening from a very deep sleep. In a traditional act of chivalry we happily extend our hospitality to you and invite you to come in, stay awhile – and enjoy!
