Travel by Train:
The location is in walking distance (10-15 min) to the train station “Rolandseck” located close to Remagen on the train line Bonn – Koblenz. When using long distance trains you have to change in Köln, Bonn, Remagen or Koblenz. When leaving the station Rolandseck turn left (to the north) and follow the main road for 400m. Turn left into the street “Am Humboldtstein”, cross below the train track and turn left again, right behind the tunnel. Follow the stairways uphill and reach Haus Humboldtstein after a few minutes.
You may of course also take a Taxi from Remagen station, costs are about 18€, travel time 15 minutes. From Bonn Hbf the Taxi driver will charge you about 35€ for a 30 min trip.
It is also possible to reach Haus Humboldtstein from Bad Honnef station. You need to find the ferry “Rheinfähre Bad Honnef - Rolandseck” which is approx. 1.3 km from the station. After crossing the Rhine you directly see the train station Rolandseck. In this case you need to turn right, follow the footpath along the Rhine and cross the main street after 400m to enter the street “Am Humboldtstein”. Count on a total time of about 45min, depending on how long you have to wait for the ferry.

Arriving from the direction of Bonn:
Follow Bundesstraße 9 in the direction of Koblenz until you reach Rolandswerth (city of Remagen). You find the street „Am Humboldtstein“ at the end of the village to your right. Watch out for a sign towards “Haus Humboldtstein“ on the left (!) side of the street, since it is easy to miss the right turn. When you see a “Jet” gas station to your right, you have missed it by about 250m. Follow the street uphill, after 400m you will find Haus Humboldtstein.

From the direction of Koblenz:
Follow Bundesstraße 9 in the direction of Bonn. Just after you have passed Rolandseck (city of Remagen) you see a Jet gas station on your left. After another 250m turn left and enter the street „Am Humboldtstein“. There is a sign “Haus Humboldtstein“ on the right side of the street. Follow this street uphill, after 400m you will find Haus Humboldtstein.

Bad Honnef:
When you end up “on the wrong side of the Rhine” in Bad Honnef, search for the “Rheinfähre Bad Honnef - Rolandseck” (Address: Rheinstr., Bad Honnef). It brings you to „the right side“ in a few minutes (and for a few Euros). When leaving the ferry turn right (towards Bonn), and after a few meters you’ll see the Jet gas station mentioned above.
