A must when you visit Bamberg - and totally woth the walk up the hill! After passing rolling meadows and some lush forest you reach the medieval castle, where you can refresh yourself with an ice-cold Mahrs and the majestic view...

As already stated the view from the castle is nice and if you pay a euro then you can go up the tower too. However the restaurant is rather pricey and there isn't much else to do. If the weather is sunny and you want a breath of fresh air then make your way up to Altenburg but otherwise it's not really worth the walk.

This place is definitely worth visit. It is really nice castle with great view. Just be ready to walk up hills (like to any other castle :) )

We drove up there on a Sunday morning and it was very quiet. It is however worthwhile for the beautiful view. There was no charge for this.

A very simple castle in Bamberg. Unfortunately there is no tour because most of the castle was destroyed and rebuilt. If you do get the chance to go make sure you walk up the tower to see a spectacular view of Bamberg.
