  • It's always nice and come to a childhood memories where it is high as a young boy with MOM and Dad of every summer at least once to the Drachenfels! The railway is an experience again but always and just plain fun :-)

  • We did some problems finding it but in the end we found the cute little train which leads up the Hill. Ago 2 femate (free choice which one to try first) one right at the top where the Dragon Rock, namely the Dragon castle ruins from which there is a view nothing short of breathtaking but enjoying for little because during the time we were there (mid August) was haunted by red giant flying ants that they literally eaten alive! The waypoint is the castle of Drachenfelsbahn, a beautiful fairytale castle that can be admired freely inside without any guided tour. The interiors are furnished and immaculately kept. The whole thing is a little pricey but totally worth it.

  • The Drachenfels railway, a classic and always a visit is worth. The new viewing platform are magnificent views of the beautiful Rhine Valley in beautiful weather.

  • Easy way to get up the hill to the castle. Watch for people not waiting for those getting off at s stop conductor will not wait for your whole party to get off. We were separated and had to wait for them to return on the next train. Fortunately there are only w stops
  • At 8 euros one way or 10 round trip it's not particularly cheap but it's well worth it. Definitely ride to the top: there's a spectacular view and terrace restaurant hangout. If you're on a budget or just like fresh air, walk down through the forest. It's maybe 20 minutes maximum and there are plenty of attractions -- like a wine bar, and odd buildings -- to keep you interested. Or bring a picnic!
  • Lovely mountain railway. Not a very long ride but it's surprising how high the train takes you when you get to the top. Great views over the Rhine
  • Only got to go up to the castle for Christmas Market. The cogwheel train does not run up to the top of the hill during winter season.
  • A good tourist spot in Germany where everyone should go and see. Bad news during that time... It was raining... But still pursue
