The Castled Crag of Drachenfels

By Linda Tancs

“The castled crag of Drachenfels/Frowns o’er the wide and winding Rhine” wrote English Romantic poet Lord Byron.  That’s a reference to Drachenfels, a 1,053 foot mountain range near Bonn, Germany.   The ruined castle atop the mountain bears the same name.  A newer castle, down the Rhine and frequently referred to as the Neuschwanstein of the Rhine, is named Schloss Drachenburg, a palace constructed in the late 19th century.  A German legend recounts the slaying of a dragon in a cave in the mountain.  Hence, the mountain is named the “Dragon’s Rock”, or Drachenfels.  An electric railcar connects the summit with the resort town of Koenigswinter.
