This morning we head to the River Rhine for an included boat trip, later we join the Drachenfelsbahn Railway. This cog railway line leads to the top of Drachenfels hill and was put into operation in the summer of 1883, now more than 125 years later, the entire complex has been rebuilt. At the summit we include entrance to the Drachenburg Castle, the private villa constructed in the late 19th Century is a spectacular building. According to German folklore, Siegfried slayed a dragon just a little further up the mountain but the story of this spectacular building, a jumble or architectural styles erected in less than three years in the late 19th century by a wealthy stockbroker, is strange enough to become legend in itself.
