Decorations seem authentic and give a real feeling of medieval Transylvania. One can listen to live medieval music in some of the rooms. As a bonus, a foreign tourist might enjoy the... More

In some rooms you can enjoy medieval live music. I had a great experience with an artist [historian at the Castle] that produced am impressive "translation" of medieval lute music for vibraphone...

This place is such a beautiful place with the river flowing through and the castle dominating the land. I would have loved to live here Back in the day.

Not only is it worth the drive....which says a lot for the roads in Romania, but it will leave a lasting impression! The castle has an actual moat surrounding it!! Amazing architecture and you can spend hours enjoying all the rooms and areas surrounding it has to offer. You can even rent it out for weddings!! Highlight of our trip!!!

I can't believe I waited 23 years to visit this castle. You have to experience this for yourself to see how amazing it is. We were tired after travelling all day, but we still spent about 3 hours inside. The dungeons are not for the faint of heart!
