The castle is surrounded by tourist-type stuff and a little park. The tour of the castle is well laid out with added stairs and ramps. There are a couple of sections where you go down the original stone stairs and have to hold onto a chain. The view from the top of the castle is beautiful. This place is perfect... More

The castle is not too far away from Krakow, One can make an easy day trip from Krakow. The views are spectacular and it takes you back to the medieval times. It's a great place to hang out with friends or family, you can have a small little picnic. It even houses a museum inside which has arms, uniforms from... More

The place is really nice. You can visit the whole castle and inside the castle there's information in English, Polish and German about the places and stuff you see. You have to follow the direction in the castle. Most things are outside but some rooms are inside and there are expositions about weapons, torture methods etc. If you combine the... More

The castle is great. There are ruins only, but you can walk there for at least an hour. I like the places, I like the views. If you have enough time you can take your picnic basket and eat inside on a grass.

We visited that place for second time after few Years since first visit and the place is improving. Few new spots were added including view point in High Castle. Unfortunately for us it was foggy so we can't see further than 100 meters ahead. The castle is build on rock, so when visiting this place You must be warned about... More

The castle is in ruins, but it only makes it easier to go back in time and imagine what it was like 500 years ago, I always prefer original buildings to those rebuilt (in other words built in the 21st century) ones. It's simply beautiful! And the scenery - breathtaking! Unfortunately I didn't have enough time to do the guided... More

This great looming castle was built in the late 14th century; after falling into disrepair over the centuries, the castle was nationalized after World War II. Up and down you will go. Great fun visiting the main courtyard, various towers, torture chambedr, weapons room, etc. A well written pamphlet provides a map and brief descriptions. As with all ruins in... More
