If you are visiting Cologne, Germany, it might also be a good idea to spend a day traveling by boat from there to Koenigswinter. The box office is in front of the boats & # 39; port near Cologne & # 39; old town. This tour is daily 4 hours in advance and 3 hours in advance due to downstream power. Just sit back and relax while watching the small towns south of Cologne. The boat sails to four ports before you reach Koenigswinter, but you don't have to do anything, just stay in your seat so that new passengers can win and get yours.
Koenigswinter is a town in the Nordrhein-Westfalen district, located at the foot of the Siebengebirge, between mountains and hills. It is famous for its small town charm, having a beautiful promenade consisting of hotels, restaurants, cafes, old houses that are directly across the river. Also feel her shopping. You can buy some souvenirs from places. Walk the streets of its narrow old town, where you will find some old wine houses and shops that may be of interest. But Koenigswinter is best known for the Drachenfels Burg (the castle of the Dragon & Rock), located at the tip of the Drachenfels accessible by the Drachenfels Railway. Legend has it that on this rock a dragon was killed by a German epic hero Siegfried.
On the way down from Dresden you can visit Dresden (castle). This castle was built in 1882 by Baron Stefan von Statter, a successful stock trader, but he never really lived here. Prefer to walk down the fort on your way out of the castle, stop by Winzerhaeuschen and get yourself some cool drinks. From there continue to walk to Honigushchen, Honey Houses, just get a little closer to it. If you still have time, visit Nibelungenhalle, the reptile zoo, right next to the honey houses.
For families with children who want to visit this place, there is SeaLife at Koenigswinter. It's a marine aquarium where you can feel the creatures nearby. It is directly opposite the river port. In addition, there is an outdoor swimming pool and an entertainment area called Lemmerzbad, located in the castle's lower nature park.
Remember to be on time in port so as not to let your ship return to Cologne. Have a nice trip!
