It's a short ride & the town is small, quit & peacefull with cobbled-stone streets & beautifull houses & flowers in front of most of the houses. Then we... More

This is a lovely old castle with great views over Kronberg. We didnt get to see the museum, but it is well worth the €3 entry fee.

Burg Kronberg isn't the best of the castles I've visited but it's very old (1220), built on a rock and if you climb the 120 steps up to the Tower, you enjoy a panoramic view of the stunning village.The garden isn't special but it's a nice walk with a view.There is a small museum which reveals Kronberg's history and especially...

The castle itself is being renovated at the time, so you can "only" visit the keep, which gives you a very nice view over the Rhein-Main-Plain and the beautifully maintained garden (Prinzengarten). You can also visit the small "Stadtmuseum", which gives an interesting insight into Kronberg's history (the kids loved the pictures taken by pigeons...). Hopefully the castle will be... More

Burg Kronberg is one of the main attractions in Kronberg. It's a small uphill walk to the castle. Unfortunately the castle is not well maintained, and some parts are under construction. You can walk up the main tower, but not to the top. Views from the highest part of the tower are not much better than from the base of... More

Well worth a visit which has excellent views of the Frankfurt Skyline on a clear day ....only bit of constructive criticsm that is needed is that it should be better signposted from the Altstadt.
