Beautiful ruins with some reconstruction but minimal. Amazing example of a castle sitting high on a river cliff. The climb to the tower top is worth it. Nice shop area. Totally a can't miss location if in the area!

this has to be one of the best castle we have been to , and the area was great , able to wonder around at our own pace

An hour or so of interesting history in a ruin that is nearly completely available for your exploration. Also some bits to keep the kids' attention, especially if you have your device (network connected phone or tablet) with you.
Lovely castle to explore, with the ability to still climb to the top and admire the beautiful views. It's a huge castle, so allow plenty of time to wander around and enjoy it.

Great little cafe behind the castle. Offers light food, coffee and teas. Perfect place to end a day wandering through the castle. Lovely staff and excellent service.
