“Perhaps the view is the best”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

Some very eager staff showed us the various collections of painings, weapon and Music instruments. Ask at the ticketoffice to see the carnival costumes. A few are to be tried.

“A nice view of a Ptuj.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

It is certainly worth the walk up the hill to visit the Castle and get the lovely view over the town and the river. If you have a car you may also want to visit Ptujska-Gora which is about 20 minutes away to see the old cathedral and to get an even more majestic view over the valley. Well worth the drive.

“Worth visiting - but don't expect to be given tour”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2014

As title said worth visiting however there is no real tour and guide provided. There were 4 ladies standing around and all we got was: "you go in through this door and you will come out through that door then you come downstairs and go in through that door and you'll come out there and then come and see me and I will show you which door you will use on ground door"i did not found this particularly helpful - some rooms were without English or German or Slovenian explanations

“a suitable place to see the sunrise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

It is a good place to get some understanding about the history about Ptuji, and I think it is also a suitable place in ptuji to see the sunrise, normally no one go to there in the morning, you can wait in silence, breath fresh air , and to see the cloud turn into brilliant and colorful.
Maybe, it is a so normal morning, but I like it.
