Excellent view to the Rhine Valley - both south and north - and very nice spot to climb up the Dragon Rock ruine.
You can interrupt the cog railway ridehalf way in order to visit the Schloss Wolkenburg and the nice garden (extra payment!)

Head up the hills on the mountain railway or walk up if you're feeling energetic. Take in the beautiful views across the Rhine Valley and across to Bonn. Don't miss the ruins at the very top and stop for refreshment in the smart modern cafe.

The nearest subway/tram station is called Königswinter Fähre. (Line 66). The railway is half a mile from the cog rail, the tram stop is a little closer.
