“Impressive ruins in middle of town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013

Well presented ruins with good information on history of the building. A little difficult to get access to it at first. Directly across form the train station and beside the Station Hotel.

“Not bad for a short trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013

Castle is across the road from the station so its easy to find, its inside the park and is free to wander round....obviously its a ruin so there are walls and stone everywhere, but a nice bit of history

A well kept ruin, with just enough information to read to help you know what was what. A nice place to relax after lunch or dinner before heading to other destinations.
