I would recommend walking around the park and not just parking nearby. If you park nearby, it is only a 400 m walk. The park is nice walk and forrest is pleasant. The views from the ruins are very nice, with Frankfurt in the distance....More

Some castles (and castle ruins) are not very tourist accessible, but this one you pay a small admission and can really explore the depths as much as you wish. I hear Burgfest is a great time to visit, but we just couldn't make our trip...More

Königstein is a very nice place and there is a tower and it has beautiful view on it. You can park in the city and you have to walk up, but it is not a problem, it´s worth it.

The view from the fortress is really beautiful , if you lucky enough to have good weather you can see the skyline of frankfurt and also Großer Feldberg. Highly recommended !

We did walk up to and around the castle. Whilst it is a great place to go and see, to be fair, it would be better in the sunshine. Cost is great at €3 each to get in, something English Heritage and National Trust could...More

The ruin is visible from various parts of the town Königstein. It is located in walk distance from the town center and is it quiet easy to get there, whilst walking for a few minutes in the nature.
