The Königstein Castle was probably built in the 11th century to secure the important imperial road between Frankfurt and Cologne. The castle was destroyed by the French at the end of the 18th century and has since been a ruin, the second largest fortress ruin in Germany. From here you have a fantastic view over the Rhine-Main-Plain and into the Taunuswälder.During the summer months the castle is open daily from 10am to 7pm. From November to February, the ruins are open to visitors only on Saturdays and Sundays. The entrance fee is 3 euros. Every year on Ascension Day there is a big knight tournament at the castle.
