Plan a half day to visit this historic site, built on a ridge overlooking the town. The river Salzach is also seperating Bavaria from Austria. The castle is one Kilometer long and is in excellent condition. Its less a tourist attraction and more a museum....More

Take your time walking the grounds and seeing the castle. Several great views. Restaurant on ground for drinks or lunch and dinner. Stairs leading down to old town and the river and bridge to Austria .

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

Unexpectedly we visited this place during the summer medieval burgfest. The castle itself inspires you and kids loved it, they felt as if in a fairy-tale, especially with all the people in costumes. Lovely atmosphere. The evening entrance was 6 Eur and for the whole...More
