  • Very big and impressive weapon collection! I was impressed. But take warm clothes there, it is +10 degrees inside and tour is for 1 h.
  • Nice big castle that brings you back in time. Guided tour was really interesting and talked about the people who'd owned the castle and the times of old Austria/Austria-Hungary. Also some interesting insight into life of ordinary people of the middle ages and facts about running a castle that were unknown to me. We went with our young kids who didn't understand German and they made it through. Lots to see made it ok for them but the tour takes at least an hour and is really too slow for the younger croud.
