It was a beautiful afternoon to take a drive out of Frankfurt. We visited Kronberg and found our way to the castle. It sits at the top of the town. We decided to tour on our own. It was very nice and worth the visit.

We had a small tour in English. Being a sleepy town, we were the only visitors, so it became a private tour. This medieval borg is immaculately maintained and often used by locals for events. Lovely views of Frankfurt and an easy walk to shops...More

This is a very mystic place which makes you feel like in earlier centuries. At Easter and other certain dates guided tours are offered. Don't miss a walk through the garden which is more like a little forest with extraordinary trees.

Interesting self guided tour. Not much English information but it didn't really detract from the experience. Very worth a look.

The castle itself is truly of old original stone and brick structure and I believe a must see. It is not well maintained nor renovated, which thus shows it's true medieval form. It's not the elegant castle like the others in Germany, but that is...More

The castle is located on top of a hill around which lies the town of Kronberg. It was possible to go inside the castle for a reasonable fee. Inside was not much, but the architecture and the small well kept park where nice to experience....More
