If you have an opportunity to visit this castle take it! It seems well maintained and well kept. One caveat, most of the displays are only in German. If you speak don’t speak (or read) German you may miss out on some of the rich...More

Great cable car ride but it broke down! Fixed reasonably quickly (we were in the station not midway) which was good as its very long walk down (or up if you are hardy) Shame as somebody else said the exhibits are only in German, but...More

This is a charming castle that offers great views of its surroundings. A funicular goes quickly to the top, and there are plenty of nice walking areas and a play structure for kids. You can also get nice views of the castle by driving down...More

We entered at the small gate at the bottom of the hill. Parking is tricky by the graveyard. But once we got into the park area, it was incredible. A long, steep climb on cobblestones--but worth it. Views at the top were spectacular. The castle...More

Only a year ago it was free to walk up through the castle gates up to the hill to the castle. It was a fantastic day out. I understand that they might have to add a small charge to help keep the castle in good...More
