At the top of the summit is a ruined castle which, together with the Drachenfels plateau, is one of the most popular recreation areas in the Rhineland.

It's a very nice tour. It takes a long time, but time goes by faster than expected. Unfortunately, you don't have a lot of time in Königswinter, a 3-hour stay is a short one. If you want to take the cog railway, it should be booked in advance! Otherwise a very successful day!

A little long and not enough audio details

Four hours ended up feeling a little long since I was traveling alone. I'm sure it was perfect for people traveling with a friend. I took the boat up and did the castle ruins in Kogniswinter and then took the train back. It ended up being the perfect little day trip. It got colder than expected and the server on the top level was quick to hand out blankets. I guess I must have looked cold because he didn't even ask, just brought one over! Also if you want to order a coffee or drink of some sort it was a little pricey.

The trip was great, the service was great. Only on the return journey did some things not work. The ship was 40 minutes late and we were left waiting passengers in the heat without any information about when the ship is coming or whether it will come at all or why it is delayed . There was no information or apology later either.
