We had a small tour in English. Being a sleepy town, we were the only visitors, so it became a private tour. This medieval borg is immaculately maintained and often used by locals for events. Lovely views of Frankfurt and an easy walk to shops and restaurants down in Kronberg village. The tour became a little boring for my tweens,... More

Not the biggest of the castles in the area, but a nice one nonetheless. The view from the garden on the city plus the skyline of Frankfurt is unbeatable and climbing the tower is fun for kids and a challenge for adults. Definitley a place to visit when you are in the area.

The castle is in very good shape and is well worth a visit. For 3 euro you can visit the grounds and the tower on your own. Interiors are accessible via guided tour only, for 5 euro. Tours in english are not always available... I would have loved visiting the interiors even in german despite not understanding, but apparently the... More

This is a very mystic place which makes you feel like in earlier centuries. At Easter and other certain dates guided tours are offered. Don't miss a walk through the garden which is more like a little forest with extraordinary trees.

Interesting self guided tour. Not much English information but it didn't really detract from the experience. Very worth a look.

We were just walking the wonderful old part of this town, when we came upon the castle. A very friendly lady told us that a tour was going to be in 40 minutes. We went to lunch and came back to have a personal tour with a man who worked so hard to give us all the information in English.... More

The castle itself is truly of old original stone and brick structure and I believe a must see. It is not well maintained nor renovated, which thus shows it's true medieval form. It's not the elegant castle like the others in Germany, but that is its charm. Part of the enjoyment is the way there. The town of Kronberg im... More

The castle is located on top of a hill around which lies the town of Kronberg. It was possible to go inside the castle for a reasonable fee. Inside was not much, but the architecture and the small well kept park where nice to experience. The castle also has a tower in which you can go up a winding (and... More

Beautiful old town, easily accessible by train from Frankfurt. Castle worth a visit, although only a couple of hours needed. No café, but does have toilets. Cheap to get in compared to GB. It is worth spending time strolling around the ancient streets with its historic buildings.

We went there by local bus from Kronberg train station. We waited a while till a bus showed-up and asked the driver while he goes to the castle & he confirmed. 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
