Königstein Castle Ruin in the Taunus Mountains is one of the largest castle ruins in Germany. The castle was built in the 11th century. However, the oldest parts of the walls still visible today date from the 12th century. As customary in past centuries, the castle was constantly extended, enlarged and rebuilt. Through wars and sieges, the castle was repeatedly partially destroyed and then rebuilt with greater strength. In the 18th century, the castle was largely destroyed and not rebuilt.

The decay of the ruins was accelerated because from 1796 onwards the inhabitants of Königstein repeatedly removed stones as building material for numerous houses in what is now the old town of Königstein. A common and permitted procedure at the time, to which other historic buildings in many countries also fell victim.

The castle ruins as we know them today are, as they say, what remained.

Situated at an altitude of 407 metres, the ruin still towers impressively on the western edge of the old town of Königstein. The magnificent panoramic view over the Taunus, to the large Feldberg and the Rhine-Main plain impresses visitors day after day.
