There is an amazing view of the city from up top. We stopped for cheap, but delicious, local wines at the places situated on the way up. The tour of the castle was great. Would definitely do it again one day!

The castle is nice. You can visit it only as part of a guided tour. The caslte is not original. The original castle has been destroyed and this is reconstruction but it definately worth a visit. The views from the courtyard are great :)

Fantastic. Full of well preserved furniture and original ornaments. Incredible view from the balcony and something different round every corner. Probably the best we have ever visited in Germany.

Gave us something to do between drinking glasses of white wine. There is a shuttle up the hill but we walked up the fairly steep hill.

We had a great time touring the castle. The rooms where beautiful and we would have loved to see more of this great building. The view on the balcony was amazing and the autumn colours surrounding the castle where beautiful.

Thank Darkmini
