The Godesburg

situated on top of a small spa town of Bad Godesburg. the Godesburg is a ruined castle dating from the 13th century. Today, the romantic ruin of a fortress accommodates a hotel and a restaurant, which both display the harmony between the Middle Ages and the modern spirit.

the “Bergfried”, the highest part of the fortress was maintained though. with euro 1 entrance fee per person, it worth a visit.
