Well with the trip to the top; great views over the Rhine, including all the way to Köln cathedral to the north. There's a cafe at the top if it's raining, but the coffee was disgusting.

There is a large viewing area and cafe close to the top of this tram accessed mountain but the pathway up to the ruined castle at the top is close due to landslips so reducing the purpose of the ride up.
Though, better get a guide or prepare, because there is little to no guidance available. Most remarkable are the views of the Rhine river from atop.
Short hike or a train, it's up to you! We did hike to get to the top, but it's worth it! Wonderfull view, a place to clear your thoughts, or just enjoy a cup of coffee with your family! Rhine as stunning as always!

Even though it was hazy and I couldn't see all the way to Cologne, the views along the Rhine were still magnificent. The castle ruins are basic although the dragon theme helps make it interesting. Get the train to the very top, see the view,...More
One must go to the hill top if you are in Konigswinter . You can take a tram and for the return journey + the entry to the castle it would cost you EUR 15 which is pretty much justified when you go at the...More
