It is a nice castle. Has entrance fee. In a part of it, there are hosted events. Not crowded, perfect for a walk. The view on the town and on Frankfurt is really good.

The town itself is very relaxed with narrow cobblestone roads and slopes. Beautiful views from various locations en route to the burg. Burg itself is well maintained and not a very vast space to explore. On terrace-1, the garden offers nice view of surrounding Taunus...More
