We were offered a voucher that included a free visit to the ruin but it was closed, on a Saturday. A closed ruin! Why? Who steals rocks??

The castle ruins are kept very well - upgrades are in progress; festivities are held there, too. Climb the tower!

Definitely well worth a visit to take you back to the medivial age ....not to mention the breathtaking views of the Frankfurt Skyline. Suggestion is to take a windbreaker with you as it can get quite chilly up on the look at vantage point. An excellent venue for a musical concert in the summer months ....defintely worth a visit

This place feels like a real castle from the middle ages when it hosts medieval festivals. It achieves the gone back in time atmosphere by: 1. Taking a semi-ruined castle (Burg Königstein) 2. Add a medieval tournament 3. Provide discounts for people to come in costume 4. Letting the German weather do the sunshine/rain/sun/rain/storm/sun thing (all in a few hours).... More

They also have mid-evel games from time to time. Worth the walk and get some exercise! Great look on the Frankfurt area!
