The Drachenfels in the Siebengebirge
The Drachenfels, probably the best-known mountain in the region around Cologne and Bonn, features the ruins of a castle on its summit that can be seen from a great distance and together with the Drachenfels plateau is one of the most popular local recreational destinations in the Rhineland. Both hikers, who head through the famous Nachtigallental or use the Eselsweg to the summit, as well as visitors, who ride to the top on the Drachenfels Railway, love the view stretching far into the Rhine valley below and enjoy visiting the new restaurant on the Drachenfels.
A catering establishment has already existed on the mountain since 1834 and after various refurbishments and extensions, the restaurant and viewing platform have now been rebuilt.
Today the plateau sparkles after its makeover and the viewing terrace with seating offers an unspoilt, far-reaching panorama to the Eifel and/or to Cologne.
If the weather happens to be poor, visitors can enjoy the view from the glass cube and feel the impact of the Rhine landscape from there.
