“Worth a walk, better in the sunshine though”
Review of Burgruine

We did walk up to and around the castle. Whilst it is a great place to go and see, to be fair, it would be better in the sunshine.
Cost is great at €3 each to get in, something English Heritage and National Trust could take note of...
Do take a hike up the central tower and get the cobwebs blown away. It was cold and wet the day we were there so we could only imagine how great the views are from the top across the Tanaus hills.
Go and see for yourself, it's worth the walk.

The ruin is visible from various parts of the town Königstein. It is located in walk distance from the town center and is it quiet easy to get there, whilst walking for a few minutes in the nature.

if you are staying at the nearby hotel, these ruins are a very short run away, if you make it all the way to the top it is a very nice spot to relax and if the weather is good has very nice views over frankfurt

Our son lives in Konigstein so we made plans to walk from their house to the castle. It was a clear day and the views from the top were awesome. We could see Frankfurt. The walk up to the tower is a challenge if you are not in great shape but our 3 year old grandson made it so you can too. We were impressed with how preserved the castle is.
Admission is very reasonable 3 Euros for adults and 1.50 Euros for children.
