Surprisingly huge and elegant building complex. It completely reflects historcal time and the greatness of the Polish kingdom.Onyl disturbing point is to find the famous Leonardo painting. It is well hidden. Not easy to find the ticket office only for this piece.

Generally speaking, yes, the walk up to the main entrance is basically a ramp. Admission to the grounds is completely free and there is a restaurant & coffee shop as well as a gift shop which are easily accessible. The grounds are lovely to walk around with some nice views without even entering the main buildings , however, like a lot of Krakow the ground is mainly cobbles so can be uneven and bumpy. There are parts of the castle which would be difficult to visit with a wheelchair (if I recall correctly the cathedral had a wheelchair accessible entrance) the main castle I only saw steps. If you plan to visit I would recommend going early and walking up into the main grounds to the visitor information centre located in the far right corner of the castle grounds as it will be less busy considering most visitors seem to stop at the small ticket office at the top of the walls not realising there is a main office further into the grounds. The ticket office for the Cathedral is located directly opposite the cathedral and is for the church only... it is not the main ticket office for the castle. Tickets are sold for different parts that you can visit so they will be able to advise which would be accessible and which not so then you can choose which if any you wish to visit. But, I say go early as entrance numbers are limited for each attraction on a daily basis. I hope this helps and wish you a pleasant visit.
