Königstein Fortress

The state of Saxony has a lot of castles and fortresses, in fact almost 1,000 beautiful buildings, which offer a lot of interesting history. Find a cheap family holiday in the south at Risskov with child-friendly hotels and plenty of opportunity to set your own pace. Festung Königstein, or Königstein Fortress, certainly belongs in this unique pool of exciting German history and is the largest hilltop fortress in Europe. Built on a 9.5-hectare rocky plateau, 240 metres above the Elbe, this fortress contains over 50 buildings, which are surrounded by an 1,800-metre-long fortress wall, with the wall up to 42 metres high in places. In the centre of the fortress is a 152.5 metre deep well, which is also the second deepest in Europe.

Used as a state prison, the fortress is still intact and today houses one of Saxony's main tourist attractions. Festung Königstein also has a special map to help wheelchair users find their way around. There is also a tactile model, which gives the visually impaired a better opportunity to experience the fortress by touch.

A great experience for the whole family. Go on a self-drive family holiday and enjoy the many beautiful buildings from other centuries with Risskov.
