Schloss Burg Reviews
This one's an odd one. It's a gorgeous little place and really well maintained, but once you specifically ask the tour guide you find out that it is a complete rebuild and not the original castle at..... more »
A must to visit when in NRW. Not only of historical interest with well sign posted descriptions, but also various events and markets held through the year. more »
Long time ago...... this is the true story of this historic building(s) a world famous castle, locally! interested place to go back in the past. Some shops and restaurants make this trip perfect. To go with the "Seilbahn" is exciting....
Loved to come here as a kid. It has lost nothing of its historical charm. Can get busy on sunny days, but the fortress with its museum, arts and crafts stores and restaurants (amazing waffles) is always worth a visit.
