A visit to the Königsteiner Burg

Monday, May 5th, 2008

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.

A visit to Burg Eppstein

Monday, March 24th, 2008

For Easter I took my daughter to visit Burg Eppstein – a castle that started life in the 10th Century and who has changed hands many times over the centuries. At the beginning of the 20th Century much of the castle was restored and in 1929 it was handed over to the town of Eppstein.

The town is situated to one side of the B455 road and the castle ruins can be seen from the road itself. It is easiest reaching using the A3 exit Wiesbaden-Niedernhausen. There is plentiful parking on the outskirts of the old town, at the side of the main road.

The castle is open daily except on Mondays, but it is worth visiting when the museum is opened as it contains a number of interesting exhibits. There is even a themed book corner to keep children occupied. The museum is only open in the winter on Sundays and Bank Holidays, in the summer additionally on Wednesday and Saturday afternoons. For current information visit the town website.
