4.3/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web
Formerly a summer resort, Christian boarding school, Nazi elite school, and eventually training center for the German Rail Regional Office, Schloss Drachenburg was constructed in just two years, between 1882 and 1884. Built as a private castle-like villa for a rich businessman, he never ended up living here. The mansion is now owned by the State Foundation and open to the public. Visit the interior to see ornate decor and paintings--and for views of the river below. Hike up from the town below, take a historic train ride up, or for children, even ride a donkey.

  • The castle is a beautiful example for German romanticism of the 18th and 19th century. Situated high above the Rhine one has a beautiful view over the Rhine to Bonn and even up to Cologne. The Interior had suffered heavily in the dogs of war part is also missing has been lovingly restored. The castle is so worthwhile, the brunch in the castle can I do not recommend. The staff is nice and helpful, the buffet is also beautifully arranged in a Bay window. Thus, the positive aspects are unfortunately already exhaustively enumerated. The room in the basement has the flair of a parish hall Castle atmosphere is not felt. The breakfast portion is at the level of a bed and breakfast. (Pancakes are finished goods and butter is cold, shelf and given the temperature strives to change the State.) The warm dishes (total 3) built already at 10:30 so to start and when it came to the lunch part of the buffets were fully dried out. Also here with "spätzle" pasta and dumplings, finished products be used.

  • A great place to relax. Most visitors to the Castle at tramway in Athens, but up is also not very difficult. But climbing on foot, you can see another recreation place for the locals-the water park on the lawn. people basking in the water park, sunbathing on the lawn immediately. Of course, if you're there in the summer. The castle itself extraordinarily interesting and kind of from there is very beautiful.

  • High above King winter with great views of the Rhine. The castle is a good example of the architecture of Historicism. The Interior is time of founder of. Who is interested should look at the Castle. Interesting landscaping, as well plenty of time schedule.

  • This place is looking really nice from outside and the architecture is nice generally. Not so much to see inside though if you are not into renewed furniture. The tower is nice, so don't miss going there. Also the garden is cool.
  • Great castle from the 19th century with a beautiful park around it. You can ride a special tram up the mountain and catch an amazing vista on the top. Very little English info though.
  • Loved it. Castle is in a perfect state. View is awesome, perfectly priced for what you get.
  • I expected more. Honestly, I could have seen all that in a furniture store. Wasted money. Nice place though.
  • Very Nice castle, with an amazing view of the Rhine, Bonn and Köln! Worth a visit, and take time to fully appreciate it!
