This is a fabulous castle, running along a ridge above the town. it can be reached by a couple of different paths, both rather steep. Once you're up top, you can wander through a quiet stretch with some great views, toward to main bastion at...More

I thought this would be admission to another castle but It wasn't! You park your car then you walk quite a ways To get to the castle part...hence the advertised "longest Castle in the world". You have to walk through many Courtyards to finally get...More

I think one of the previous viewers described it best - a Bavarian castle without the crowds. And yes, you can take pictures of the interior! (without a flash, of course). One floor of the castle is furnished as it would have been during the...More
