Reinhardstein Castle is located in the High Fens region, in the municipality of Robertville. The stronghold was build in 1354 and got nearly destroyed in the 19th century. Currently the castle is inhabited but visitable for tourists.
Aside from the castle and it’s beautiful surroundings, the area of Reinhardstein has another lovely hidden feature: The highest cascade in Belgium (approx 60m). However as spectacular as it sounds, it’s only a narrow stream of water, and you’re unable to see it’s entire height. In order to reach the Reinhardstein waterfall, follow the hiking trail that leads down into the valley.
