The Staufer castle from the 12th century, restored today, consists of a lookout tower, imposing ring walls, a castle fountain over 60 meters deep and a good place to stop for refreshments. The magnificent panoramic view of the old town of Königsberg, the Steigerwald, the Haßgau and the Rhön is worth the climb alone.

Over a short, steep footpath from the city I reach 'Castle Königstein' - good. Above, a restaurant with home-style cooking awaits me - too good. But the real highlight is the beer garden and the beautiful view of Königsberg and Haßberge in fine weather.
