...and I've been to a lot. Aggstein is an amazing castle even today as ruins; it must have been spectacular in its heyday. It is very well preserved, and the amenities for visitors are excellent, from the visitors' center to the audio tour to the wooden walkways that take you to all around the castle to the surprisingly affordable and...

I visited this attraction with my family in July 2013. It is a beautiful place to visit with a great infrastructure that allows one to explore the ruins, including cafeteria and gift store. The view from the Wachau is amazing.

Its a very steep drive up to the castle, but don't be alarmed (like we were) the narrow road opens up to a nice large parking area at the top. It's about a kilometer drive up the tiny access road to the parking lot. Great... More
