All reviews beautiful castle guided tour day trip the river minute walk north tower palace style over the top chequered history euro entrance small cafe private villa went straight definitely worth the visit second world war original castle castle entry
This was a fun 1/2 day trip. We got the audio tour and it was entertaining and interesting. Such a beautiful place with gorgeous views - can see all the way to Cologne! Kids will love going to the tower!
Before I forget, take the train... !
Ok... situated up a rather large hill this imposing building looks too new to be true and indeed has had extensive renovation..
Take the audio tour, no guide, as it details lots of info... you must leave ID...More
The castle is halfway up Drachenfels and can be reached by the Drachenfelsbahn (cog railway) or by walking up.
From the outside this looks like a fairy tale. You would have to be pretty unromantic not to like this place. Inside there is some nicely...More
This was a very interesting castle to visit in Germany. We went on a rainy day, so was good to be indoors. There is so much history in this beautiful place. We had a very good guide who really knew a lot of the history...More
This a beautiful castle to visit along the Rhine. It was built in the late 1800's so it isn't as historic as most of the castles on the Rhine. But the interior is lovely with romantic painted murals throughout. It reminded me of a smaller...More
We had a conducted tour of the private apartments in this castle/schloss. Unfortunately, they were filming the German version of Antiques Roadshow, so there were some rooms we were not able to visit.
The schloss has been tastefully restored to the era when it was...More
This is unlike the "robber barons'" castles further upstream in that it is complete and relatively modern. It is nonetheless still well worth seeing - there are furnished rooms, works of art, very impressive stained glass windows and great viewpoints over the Rhine Valley all...More

When you're in the area, or looking for a detour, go and visit this beautiful castle. Though not as old as some of the other castles along the Rhine, it is a lovingly restaured building that was, like so many others, heavily damaged during WW2....More

We did a boat trip from Cologne, Koenigswinter is a good destination. It does take about 4 hours to get there by boat but it is very relaxing. Once in Koenigswinter you have a few hours until the boat returns. For us it was plenty of time to walk up to the castle, explore the castle and grounds then return to the town for a look around. The return trip was faster.
