A wedding was being held in the castle during my visit and what a magnificent setting for it. I climbed to the very top turret and the views were well worth the climb.

Fascinating exhibition and stunning views over the rooftops of Malcesine and the glorious vistas of Lake Garda.

Excellent historical site right in the centre of town. Lots of steps so be warned but the view from the tower is worth it (even if the bell can catch you out!). Lovely display of boats and ships on the lake

Pleasantly surprised by this attraction. The castle building itself provides magic views over the surrounding Lake Garda and over the tiled roofs of Malcesine. The rooms inside it are packed full of high quality exhibits covering the history of the castle, its various owners and...More

Nice place to spend a couple of hours. The view from the tower is great and I enjoyed the museum inside the castle.

If you have time, stop by. The hi lite for the adults was the views and the main attraction for kids were the natural history exhibits (on loan from the museum in Verona?). The little Goethe exhibit was also interesting. The bonus attraction is the...More

Spent about an hour walking around the castle. It has some interesting history which is well presented. There is also an exhibition about the flora and fauna around the lake. Only costs a few euros to go inside and is worth doing if you are...More

As Paul said, your best bet is the Sirmione ferry. With a day ticket, you could even carry on up to Riva and back down again in the same day to see the full lake from the water. It is also possible to hire a private boat... More

The castle is in the town right on the edge of the lake. The cable car to the top of Monte Baldo is near the tourist information place in Malcesine. The 2 attractions ate only a few minutes walk away, although many of the... More
