It's worth seeing the ruins, climbing up the stony road and seeing the old and new part of the city. I entered a tower (a ticket costs 2-4Euro don't remember) but the view was nothing special, better from the Three Crosses hill, What I liked was a display showing the Batlic states united for their independence, known as The Baltic...

Just when you just come to the cathedral square, you start wanting to get on the mound. The view from the top is really cool! The castle itself is the symbol of the city and it means a lot to it. The castle museum isn't so interesting, but as I meant it's more like a symbol and if you feel... More

Worth the walk up, or take the funicular up, for the views over the town and nearby areas. Perfect if you like to take pictures.

You can walk up or ride for a Euro. It opens at 10 am and you must go to the very top of the tower to see everything. Not handicap accessible.

Didn't have time, unfortunately, to go inside, we just checked it out from the outside after climbing up to the top of the hill (you can take the gondola if you don't feel like hiking). It gives you a great view at Vilnius' Old Town.

The atmosphere on the hill is amazing, everything is beautiful, amazing view of the Vilnius city. Museum inside the castle is not filled with stuff too much. There are some interesting things to look at, however, it would have been way mire interesting and exciting if there were more of them. However, after climbing to the top of the castle,... More
