  • Driving through one day we just stopped to have a great lunch at the castle. Super friendly staff. Great food and very tasty. If you need to stay in the castle hotel, this is the place to stay. You can also just check the views from the castle tower. Last... Witch was unfortunate to loose her life there...poor woman was burnt alive...
  • Great atmosphere unique rooms, nice restaurant and bar with friendly staff. Campfire with BBQ for all guests on Saturday. The tower and the dungeon can be visited, exhibition of torture instruments which I didn’t like that much.
