The castle is a great place to visit. It's full of history and will give you a glimpse of the founding of Colorado Springs.

While our tour guide was nice,this castle is really a religious conference center. It is not for those interested in a historical house museum. we had Tea which was over priced and mediocre(at best) . The food tasted like it had been bought at Cosco. Supposedly there was a scone included,but having made hundreds of scones, I'm not sure about... More

I wanted to do something very special for my family without being cliche' (i.e. nutcracker) and heard through word of mouth about the Madrigal Banquet at Glen Eyrie. We drove up the night of the banquet and it was snowing. There was a bonfire with singers in elaborate costumes outside and when you walk into the castle you are blown... More

After emailing and calling a couple of times, I am getting no response or call backs. Even after I started working with an event planner, the ball has gotten dropped after the initial... More

The castle is a MUST visit to Colorado Springs!! You can't always linger if they have a conference in session, but I've never been denied a drive through just to show out of town family the incredible work of history and architecture in our own backyard. Staff is super friendly. Grounds are beautiful, lots of wildlife (big horn sheep are... More

We were not sure of our plans, but thought if we were in the area with time we would see this castle. At the gate house we were informed that tours are generally scheduled out for days (in this case we arrived Sunday and they were scheduled to Wednesday) and on this Sunday there was an event (a wedding) so...
