Legend of the name of the apartment
The castle is first documented by the Electorate of Cologne in 1135 as a fief. 1142, Hermann of Stahleck became Count Palatine of the Rhine and Elector. 1214 Stahleck falls through to the Wittelsbach family, where it remains until 1802. In the Thirty Years' War the castle was conquered and devastated several times. The castle was finally repaired in the Palatinate War of Succession in 1689 to the ruins, like most castles in the Upper Middle Rhine Valley.
In the 19th century, the castle belonged to the personal property of the Prussian Crown Prince Friedrich Wilhelm, who gave it to his wife in 1829. Before his visit, zealous subjects had leveled the "medieval rubbish", so that one was under reconstruction. It was not until 1909, when the castle became the property of the Rhenish Society for Conservation and Landscape Protection Association, Cologne, securing work began to the ring and shield wall. From 1925 the castle was rebuilt on the foundations of the palace as a hostel. In the Third Reich on Stahleck a youth re-education camp was set up. Since the war, the castle is again a hostel. It has since been leased by the Rhenish society to the Youth Hostel Association of Rhineland-Palatinate.
The newly constructed buildings are - as hostel - not to visit. The farm is accessible and because it is closed to the Rhine side only by a low parapet gives a fine view over the Rhine Valley. Is on medieval remains (the only castle in the region with a moat), and the shield wall to the mountain side is worth seeing.
