  • A fantastic castle Part in ruins part still intact I was visiting around 10am and only saw 4 other people Being perched on the cliff side and over looking the river Elbe Not a huge castle ,but this adds to its charm You can easily while away an hour or so There are some great original parts still left and some good write ups but not too much so you lose intrest The views as you can imagine are amazing I really like the fact you have to ring the ball to be let out after you have finished You can get a laminated a4 numbered description to take around , but all points have the summary I liked the knights hall , with spears and cost of arms along with a suit of armour .... Worth a visit and helps you with a look into the past but without getting to bigger down Good walking around the remains Wear good solid footwear
