If the funicular does not run, walking is the only way to reach Augustusburg and the castle from the train station down in the valley. On the map, the distance looks harmless. Locals will tell you that the walk takes half an hour.

Phew.

Rather calculate 45 minutes, and a steep ascent uphill all the way. If you are not in perfect shape, this is quite something.

The hiking trail begins below the station by the train bridge. The map on the board there does not have much in common with reality, it just helps to guess the direction. Anyway, the steepest path uphill can't be wrong.
