  • We were able to experience a guided tour of the highest class! With full heart and soul we were brought closer to the history of the fortress and the 45min passed like in flight.

  • This Castle is AMAZING it's a full castle complete with royal gardens, guard turrets, royal dining hall. The views from the fortress are amazingly beautiful! Admission is inexpensive, I am from the US and really enjoyed the tour! There is great wine drinking on the bridge in the town below 😉
  • This is a vast castle which takes some time to explore in full. It is really several castles in one, where new layers were added as time progressed. The walls of the castle feature many passages and walkways (most are not open to the public). A part of this can be seen by visiting the Maschikuli tower and associated walkway, which I recommend!
