Steeped in history and offering unbeatable views of the city, Trausnitz Castle was built in the 13th century and once served as the official seat of the hereditary rulers of Bavaria. The castle is mostly noted for including the so-called "chamber of art and curiosities," a room that can best be described as the precursor of today's museums. The castle's renowned chamber contains works of arts, treasures from the Orient, and curiosities typical of the collections owned by rulers in the Renaissance era, such as small carvings of plum stones, stuffed animals, minerals, corals, and scientific instruments of the 15th century. Several of the castle's grand rooms can be booked for special events and are often used for conferences and concerts. Check online for opening times and available guided tours.

Great place! Short tour ..could have had English translation available other than a short sheet. It is definitely worth the climb up hill. There is free parking too.
Certainly worth a visit but a bit of a walk to the top however, when you get there you will be pleased to see the view. Castle is very beautiful and grounds are well kept.
