Cologne: Drachenburg Castle Half-Day Guided Tour

2. Cologne: Drachenburg Castle Half-Day Guided Tour

Discover the magical Drachenburg Castle, a 19th-century palace built on the Drachenfels mountain with breathtaking views of the Rhein valley. You'll be picked up at your accommodation in Cologne by a private car and enjoy a comfortable 40-minute journey to the charming Königswinter village. You'll first head up the mountain toward the medieval Burg Drachenfels, onboard the historical Drachenfelsbahn, which is the oldest cog railway in Germany. It'll feel like you're being pulled up the hill on a roller coaster, but without the scary drop at the end. At the top, you can explore the ruins and marvel at the incredible views of the valley below, and a perfect spot for a panoramic photo. On a sunny day, you may even spot Cologne Cathedral on the horizon. Once you finish, you'll make your way down the path towards Castle Drachenburg. Here, your guide will provide you with all the fascinating stories about the castle-like villa built in the late 1800s, with its short but turbulent history. Perfectly renovated to reflect its original splendor, it's well worth exploring. And don't forget to roam the beautiful gardens. The Drachenfelsbahn will take you back to the village. If you're keen to continue exploring, you can opt for the 6-hour option, which will include a 2-hour sightseeing tour with your guide around the beautiful village of Linz am Rhein, known as the “colorful city”. Here, you can stroll through the historic cobblestoned streets and admire 16th-century picturesque half-timbered houses. Your guide will also lead you to the Old Market Square, St Martin Church, Linz Castle and part of the medieval city fortification, Pulverturm. Once you've enjoyed all the attractions you will be taken back to your accommodation in Cologne.

What people are saying about Drachenburg Castle

A beautiful town.

Beethoven house is a must and so is the botanical garden and the park. Don't do the Beethoven tour if you are thinking about it - the only part of it that's worth your time is the house. The rest of the places that are marked on the tour map are not accessible for tourists and only have a sign saying that Beethoven used to stay here or used to play here for a while. There are other more interesting things to do in Bonn.

We were perfectly assisted in redeeming the voucher. The person who helped us also spoke Dutch. Great experience, good explanation about the use of the tickets.

generally very good, a pity that museums (including Beethoven) and churches were closed due to renovation works and could not be visited.
