Glad I stopped off here and worth the 3€ admission fee. There was a function on so wasn’t allowed inside however 30 mins walking around the courtyard and shop was sufficient. Great architecture set over the town, worth a visit

You need to pay 3 Euro to get into the courtyard and also a little museum of medal toy soldiers. We then paid an additional 4 Euro each for the tour which I felt was well worth it. This is one of the oldest castles...More

This is a nice little castle on the hill. We had a great tour guide who explained all of history related to the castle. I was surprised at details on the inside.

I visited Harburg Castle in June of 2018 with a group of 20 high school students. We all loved it. There is great access to a wide variety of rooms, unlike some castles where your ticket gets you in just one great hall. The views...More

Don't miss a guided tour, starting every full hour! It's inexpensive, enables to go inside the church and rooms. The guide will explain nice details. You can also spend a night in the Schlosshotel.

This castle dominates the small town of Harburg and has wonderful views down over the town. In the courtyard there is a Biergarten which does good local beer even if the service can be slow. While waiting we watched colibri feeding off the plants and...More

The castle dates back to the mid twelfth century and is well preserved. I visited the castle on a cold, misty September morning and the effect was breathtaking - like going back several centuries. To enter the castle, you have to pass through several narrow...More
