One of the top ways to really get to know a region is to immerse yourself in its history. You'll discover some of the area’s stories during your visit to Burg Thurant.
If you'd like you visit it, head over to Alken. If you're not completely sure where that is, it's approximately 35 miles (56 kilometers) outside of Wiesbaden, the capital of the state.
Although there are just 4 accommodations nearby, they are a short drive from the site. Think about spending a few nights at the Moselstern-Parkhotel Krähennest and Hotel Lellmann, both of which are within 2 miles (3 kilometers) of Burg Thurant.
If you prefer to spend more money on tourist attractions instead of a place to stay, you'll be pleased to know that there are a limited range of inexpensive hotels available. You might like to try the Ferienwohnung in Alken / Mosel which is 0.3 miles (0.5 kilometers) away. An alternative solution is the Hotel Traube, just 0.6 miles (1.0 kilometer) away.
Pull up a chair, rest your legs and savor a bite to eat at Burg Café Alken GmbH, a well-known eatery not far from Burg Thurant. If you have time and a big appetite, you can also try out the delicious fare at Gaby´s Imbiss. Encounter a new side of the local area and enjoy a wine or beer at Winzerhof Wegrzynowski, also just a quick jaunt down the road.
After a busy day, jump on the train at Kattenes, 0.6 miles (1.0 kilometer) from Burg Thurant.
