Downhills and trails
The Taunus is not only the attractive low mountain range for hikers, but also for demanding cyclists. Anyone who appreciates downhill and trails will find what they are looking for here. The large Feldberg is only a few kilometers away from Königstein. Discerning bikers will find two routes here that are both challenging and fun. In Wehrheim, a little further away, two real highlights are waiting to be discovered by MTB connoisseurs. And those who want to conquer mountains and hills in the Taunus, perhaps with electric support, will definitely get their money's worth. The Hotel Königshof in Königstein is always the ideal starting point.
Beautifully situated between the two Taunus towns of Königstein and Kronberg, with a breathtaking view of the Rhine-Main area and an ambitious selection of animals, from elephants and cheetahs to penguins, the Opel Zoo is one of the absolute highlights in the Taunus. Great fun with kids, a wonderfully relaxing stroll for two, plus the chance to dine in a really fine restaurant overlooking the enclosures, the Opel Zoo is always worth a visit.
