  • The tour of the castle is highly recommended. It offers great views of Königstein.

  • Königstein castle ruins is approx. 5-10 Town Center minute walk from the station. Especially the last few meters through a small forest's worth. The ruin is very komples and offers many opportunities of discovery, a Nurf however is the view from the ruins down to Königstein or Frankfurt am Main. The rise on the platform of the Tower through narrow stairs is ideal for the best look. Due to the rather uneven ways, sturdy shoes are highly recommended. The staff at the entrance sells drinks, in addition to the tickets, and has been very friendly.

  • The fortification is rater large and the park around it very nice for a stroll on a summer day.
  • Fantastic place. Beautiful castle and views, easy going staff. Bring cash because you cant pay the entrance (3,-) by card.
  • Great day trip from Frankfurt only 20 minutes away. Located in a small but cute town. We went on a sunny day and it was not very busy. Would totally go back. When we entered we were charged 3 euros each but then got a ticket for buy one get one free this ticket is good for 5 years!
  • A nice place for a Sunday drive
  • Nice place to show friends and family visiting. Charges a moderate fee that I believe is fair. Accessible with stroller but it should be suitable for off-road driving.
