Welcome to Siebengebirge
At 461m, the Ölberg may be the highest, but the 321m Drachenfels is the most heavily visited of these ‘mountains’. From the main town of Königswinter, a nostalgic cogwheel train chugs uphill to the Drachenfels plateau with stops at the Nibelungenhalle, which celebrates the composer Richard Wagner, and the fairy-tale Schloss Drachenburg. At the top you can enjoy views, restaurants and Burg Drachenfels, a ruined medieval castle. If you want to get your heart pumping, you can also hike up along a paved path.
