“Beautiful Moated Castle”
Review of Burg Vischering

Burg Vischering
Attraction details
Reviewed January 5, 2012

I went to Burg Vischering on a cold and rainy day in December. I was glad to have a GPS system with me to help me find it. When I arrived the castle itself was closed, but the adjoining house and museum were open. For two euros, I walked through the museum, which was basically two rooms: one for kids and one with artwork. There wasn't much too see, but it gave us something to do while we waited for the castle to reopen. The entrance into this museum also covered the cost of viewing the castle.

The grounds of the castle are quite beautiful. There is a trail you can follow all the way around the castle, which we also did while we were waiting. There were all sorts of interesting species of birds in the water. I believe there are many other trails connecting this castle to others nearby. This would be a great place to ride a bike if the weather was nicer.

Once we got inside the castle, we were pleased to see some interesting artifacts. They have weapons, furniture, and artwork. They have some rooms set up as they would have been when the castle was in use. In some rooms, you could still see original frescoes painted on the castle walls. It was very beautiful. However, there isn't that much to see. They don't allow you to view the whole castle, just one floor.

There is a restaurant in the basement of the castle, however it was not open when we visited. I am guessing it is only open in the summer months when they have more visitors.
