This is an amazing place to go when you are in the region , the walk to this place is very beautiful , a lot of roadsignals so you never get lost . The period in spring is the most beautiful period to go.
We were in the area to look at Drachenburg castle and decided to walk further up the mountain to visit the Drachenfels remains. There are just a few stone walls still standing, but the view from the top of the mountain overlooking the Rhein is...More
Basically a ruined castle at the top of a hill. Not much left of the castle but you can still wander around the ruins. A funicular train takes you most of the way to the top where there happens to be a restaurant and a...More
I highly recommend walking up to the top of Drachenfels. It's a lovely walk (particularly on a sunny day), there's cafe's/bars along the way to stop off for a drink or some food, the walk itself is not too hard (you can get to the...More
Come and see ! The lovely spot looks like in a fairytale, two castles, both open for a visit, and kept perfectly. You will just love it !!! And you will never forget the view ! The lovely Rhine valley just lying there !

The views from Drachenfels are amazing! You can either ride the little train up= 10 euros or hike, its a short hike but very steep. There is a little beer garden up top, so you can have a cold beer when you arrive.
We walked up to Drachenfels from the parkplatz at the base of the Drachenfelsbahn. It is an easy walk up if you take your time. There is a small imbiss part way up where you can get some pommes or bratwurst. The view from the...More

The cog rail has only three stops, one at the top, one halfway next to the castle Drachenburg and one in Königswinter. The nearest railway station is Königswinter Bf. 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.
