William E. from ATKINSON, IL
Reviewed on 1/23/2011...
"Frankenstein", means "castle of the Franks" in German. Any Frankish castle is technically a "Frankenstein".

I've been to the "Frankenstein" located on a hill in Darmstadt, Germany, south of Frankfurt, but it does not overlook the Rhine River.

Most stories of Frankenstein castle do not even take place in Germany but much further east in Transylvania, Romania (where they do not speak much for the movies...). I don't think the Franks were ever that far east.
