I say "castle" because, despite the fact that it's in ruins, it's still really spectacular and far and away better than many, many other castles I've visited that aren't in ruins. Try not to get distracted by the atmosphere just outside the castle grounds, which includes restaurants and other tourist attractions (park with miniatures of all the important castles in... More

There are restaurants with many options surrounding the area, so you will not get starving. The parking is also very well prepared, costs me... More

Took my 8 and 10 year old girls here. Of the 6 castles we visited on this trip to Poland, this was by far their favorite. Who doesn't love freely exploring a ruin, imagining how things were 400 years ago. Not even the tourist trap gauntlet below the castle can detract from this magnificent castle ruin.

A very nice medium size castle. With some parts renovated but mostly ruins. If you like old castles you should see this one.

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.
