I visited with my wife and two kids. We walked up the covered stairs because the lift wasn't working, and ended up praising the inconvenience because we ended up seeing a lot more of the fortress complex than we would have otherwise. The audio guide...More

I was a bit taken aback by the 12,5€ entrance fee, but by the time we found ourselves inside the fortress I knew it was worth the money. The actual fortress is very vast with a large number of artifacts, rooms and nooks to discover....More

The castle is large with many doors and gates. There is no guide that explains the history. Most of the signs are in Germany. It's best to join a group. The view from the top is Amazing.
