Donaustauf Castle (German: Burgruine Donaustauf) is a ruined hill castle located at a height of 424 m above sea level (NN) on a hill spur overlooking the River Danube by the market village of Donaustauf in the Upper Palatine county of Regensburg in the south German state of Bavaria. Donaustauf grew up during the Middle Ages under the protection of the mighty fortifications of the castle.
Since 6 April 1986 the castle ruins have belonged to Donaustauf and, from 1997, the municipality had the castle made safe and renovated it.

Plenty of history here and really great views of the river. They have kept this castle in excellent condition, you can really imagine the medieval life walking through.

Hidden treasure/ Geheimtipp! This beautiful small ruin lies atop of a cliff providing a 180° view above the Donau and the plains around Regensburg. Partially recontructed it's a beautufil and peaceful spot to relax a bit, and a very exciting playground for kids and grownup. Give it a try and enjoy this view!

One of the oldest history castle in Regensburg. Next to Walhalla.

Very cool castle ruins with minimal restoration work and low foot traffic. Great views from the top.

Very calm place, and lonely. But superb views from the top.
