That's great, especially because they just made some big rebuilding of this area, which made it quite hard to get a good photo from this spot within the last few months. I can also recommend you to walk up to Ölberg if you have time, since this offers a really nice view over the valley as well: https://www.locationscout.net/germany/1610-view-over-bonn-from-oelberg-siebengebirge/12595

any chance to get nice shot with mobile photography on raw mode

It very much depends on your phone I guess, because you need a little bit of zoom if you want to get a similar photo like mine. Not much though, but wide angle wasn't an option for me since I didn't want to include the forest in front of me and have the focus on the castle.

Unfortunately I’m trying to find the location but couldn’t Anyone can help

Hey dear Abdulla, where are you exactly? If you switch the map to "Satellite" I marked the very exact point I was standing when I took this photo. If you found the parking of the Hotel at Petersberg, which is also marked on the map, you simple need to walk behind the hotel to the public back porch. To get to the hotel, you need to drive up a road to "Petersberg", which can be reached by driving from Königswinter to Ittenbach. The simpliest way to get there is probably by using Google Maps and entering "Petersberg". Did that help?

Incredible view!

Yeah it's definitely so nice up there. If you are around I would recommend the view from "Ölberg" even more, since you have a wider view over the shaped mountains of the "Siebengebirge".

Hi Manuel, which focal length do you recommend for this view? I guess, at least 100mm? br Johannes
Manuel Becker
Manuel Becker 02.09.2018
Hey Johannes, I used 50mm on an APSC camera for the sunset photo, so if you are using a full frame camera you might probably start around 70mm. 100mm is also fine of course. The one at the event "Schlossleuchten" was taken at 75mm.

Johannes Spaethe 02.09.2018
Great, my lense-portfolio ends at 85mm ;) By the way, thanks for initializing and administrating such a great website!
Manuel Becker
Manuel Becker 02.09.2018
Hehe, 85mm is perfectly fine in my opinion. Already curious about your photos and thanks for your feedback, glad that you like the platform! :)
