We spent the weekend in Germany, near Bonn and Cologne. Because we got there early, and couldn’t check in the hotel first, we went to Königswinter, which normally is a very touristy little place. This time of year though there were very little tourists. We took the rack railway up the steep hill (20% uphill!) called the Drachenfels, or Dragon’s Rock in English. On top of the hill the ruins of a castle built in the 12th century can be found. Click for a larger version!
