Trechtingshausen is a village in the Middle Rhine Valley in the Rhineland-Palatinate region of Germany.


Downriver from Bingen, there are three Medieval castles near the town of Trechingshausen: Burg Rheinstein, Burg Reichenstein, and Burg Sooneck. Built up on the stony cliffs overlooking the Rhine, these fortresses quickly transport you back across the centuries as they have displays of art, weapons, and furnishings.
