There is a funicular station to take up to the Castle Hill. However, we prefer the alternative route to walk up the hill through a slope near the funicular station. It is not a difficult slope to walk, so would recommend walking up the Castle...More
Our tour group of 20+ visited the Castle for the day as the first visit stop. We went up the castle via the funicular, a short 5-min ride up. The ride was fine with nice view but the wait for the ride did take quite...More
