Reichenstein Castle, also known as Falkenburg, is a castle in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Upper Middle Rhine Valley; it stands on a mountain spur on the eastern slope of the Bingen Forest.
The castle was long time in the possession of the Count palatine of the Rhine; in 1344, Ludwig IV, the Holy Roman Emperor, granted the castle to the Elector and Archbishop of Mainz. The current owner is a direct descendant of the Puricelli family, who purchased the castle in 1899 and completed the restorations in a neo-Gothic style.
