In addition to a ride on the oldest cog railway of Germany, the cultural diversity of the Siebengebirge awaits you on this tour. See the splendid Drachenburg at the middle station of the Drachenfelsbahn. This neo-Gothic chateau was built in 1882 to 1884. It provides deep and interesting insights into the luxurious life at the close of the 19th century. Further information about the “Neuschwanstein on the Rhine” can be found at www.schloss-drachenburg.de
The nature reserve on the Drachenfels was initiated in 1836 and is, in effect, the oldest nature reserve in Germany. Hence, a special exhibition on the history, the priorities and the objectives of nature conservation in Germany awaits the visitor in the former bailey of the Drachenburg. One section of the museum has been dedicated to persons who have rendered outstanding services to the conservation of nature in the course of the past 150 years. An introduction to the “Stiftung Naturschutzgeschichte” (Foundation for the History of Nature Conservation) can be found at www.naturschutzgeschichte.de
The "Nibelungenhalle" (Hall of the Nibelung) was inaugurated in 1913 in honour of Richard Wagner. It shows 12 large wall paintings referring to the "Ring des Nibelungen" (The Ring of the Nibelung), Wagner’s famous cycle of operas. Through an adjacent tunnel, the visitor arrives at the Dragon’s Lair, inhabited by a stone dragon of 13 metres length. The dragon’s living "relatives" can be admired at the Reptile Zoo next door: crocodiles, snakes and saurians! Further information about can be found at www.nibelungenhalle.de

The Nature Tour
The nature of the Siebengebirge is truly unique. To acquaint you with both, the experience of the cog railway and the experience of the nature in the Siebengebirge, several trees along the railway line have been labelled with info boards. They have been selected as typical examples of the Siebengebirge and are described in great detail. Look forward to learning about locust, wild service, wild cherry and various other trees along the railway line.
