I heartily recommend this place. You can enjoy one of the most stunning view of the Rhein from there and the castle is simply gorgeous inside.

Schloss Drachenburg is definitely one attraction that you should not miss during your visit of Bonn or Koenigswinter. It is a castle which was constructed in the late 19th century and was once planned for living of a local rich person (Baron Stephan von Sarter)....More

A well kept castle and beautiful views. Climbing the north tower en look around for the surroundings! You can make a walk in the garden and then travel further with the Drachenfelsbahn to the top.

The castle is gorgeous, definitely worth to go inside as well. Be aware that everything you are doing is getting charged extra. Tram ride, castle, the dragon cave thingy.

A beautiful mixture of villa, mansion and castle with unbelievable views out over the Rhine is worth more than just an hours visit. With only a 5 euro entrance to the grounds and castle it is a bargain. We arrived by car, parking further down...More

Visited with wife and 2 boys during a hike up the Drachenfels. Worthwhile to visit, despite the entry price.
