Schloss Drachenburg is an opulent castle situated on Drachenfels Hill, overlooking the Rhine River in Konigswinter, Germany.
It is a short distance from the cities of Bonn and Cologne, Germany. Built in 1884 in a Neo-Gothic style of architecture, it is considered one of the country's grandest 19th century castles. It attracts more than 120,00 tourists each year.
The castle gets its name from the medieval ruins at the top of the hill. Drachenfels stands for "Dragon's Rock." On clear days, visitors can see the Cologne Cathedral in the far distance. The castle is accessible via train, car or boat.
