You can access Drachenfels, a 321 m (1,053 ft) hill, by footpath or a small tourist train. As you wind your way up, look for the neo-Gothic castle, Schloss Drachenburg, built in 1882. A ruined castle at the summit--which requires a short but steep walk after exiting the train--was built between 1138 and 1167. Admire the views of the Rhine River and city of Bonn, then spend time watching boats travel up and down the river. Stop at the restaurant or snack bar to refuel before making your way back down. Work out when and for how long to visit Drachenfels and other Konigswinter attractions using our handy Konigswinter vacation route planner.

Der Aufstieg zum Drachenfels ist absolut machbar und auch lohnenswert, weil man auf dem Weg nach oben an schönen Waldstücken vorbeikommt und der Natur genießen kann.

Who is so at least a bit fit, should venture so even the rise instead of the car upward to drive, because the price is way too overpriced (€8 for a single ticket, € 10 for both directions). Once at the top you get stunning and beautiful views of the Rhine and the surrounding areas, which is absolutely worth seeing. With clear view (that has been denied us unfortunately to this day) you can look up after Cologne, what I very well imagine, because you can look really incredibly far. You should bring something to drink or eat, as above although such sold 5 l PET bottle of soft drinks is E.g. €3,45 for a 0, but outrageously expensive. Nature can and should enjoy no additional cost, it pays!

You can walk up and enjoy the view for free, in addition to stroll through the small forest, or come up with the cable car (10 euros). The ticket does not include the entry in the Castle or at the Museum of the reptiles.
