  • A wonderful place to visit, we went for the longer tour and enjoyed seeing the Jewish Synagogue as part of this trip.  more »
  • Although open in October till 4.30ish, the last people let in are at 3.30! As they say it takes 1.5 hours to do tour.  more »
  • If you like historical buildings (like I do), this is a really good place to visit. Loads of information and things to see so you need quite a few hours to get around everything (I didn't manage it). Very helpful staff and caters for tourists very well (suggest you use one of the translation machines they have on offer).
  • Fantastic visit. Very nice castle with well laid out self guided audio tour and paid guided tours too. It's a must if you're in this area.
