A visit to the Königsteiner Burg

This week the Monday Podcast visited the castle ruins in Königstein.

The castle is located on a hill which is accessible by foot and well sign-posted from the town centre. It cost 2EUR for adults and 1EUR for children to enter and contained a maze of different levels, doors, steps and tunnels.

In the centre is the tower which was very windy, even inside. The wooden staircase is stable but small children should be taken by the hand and good footwear is advisable.
