This castle has some neat history and is free to see. You can walk around and see the ruins on your own. There are only ruins and you don't see very much. If you are in the area and have time you could pop by for a few photos!

Atmospheric ruins worth a quick stop. Especially pretty if you have a nice day. Walk around for a few minutes and take some beautiful pics.

Typical castle ruins. Not informative. There was a view of a lake and a bridge behind. Just a tourist landmark.

There is not that much to see but it is a lovely place, you will have to use your imagination. There is not admission fee but no guide either. The only information about this place and its history is short note with a few pictures.
