Königstein im Taunus

Guided Tour of Königstein

This is first and foremost not only an excellent, but also a rare opportunity to participate in an Anglophone guided tour both through the old town and Königstein's medieval castle ruins.

The first documented mention of Königstein is from approximately 800 years ago. Even back in 1313 the small settlement beneath the massive castle awarded town ordinances and privileges. Much has happened since then...The castle ruins and many other historical buildings - such as the town hall or the so called Luxemburger Schloss - are contemporary witnesses to the varied and fascinating history that this minor resort with the healthy climate has experienced. All this will be explained in an enjoyable manner during the walk. The excursion will last about 90 minutes. Participation is free and registration is not required. Dr. Dr. Mark Scheibe will take you with him into long ago epochs - just be at the meeting place on time!
