“Wow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

The castle is fabulous. The best tour within the castle is the Royal Private apartments tour which includes a guide. She was excellent very interesting.

“another must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Easily walkable from the Market Square [I was able to push my mother there in a wheelchair - although it was a grind going up the hill]. Admission is reasonable.

“You see A LOT of great churches in Europe, but..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

...this one kind of has it all. While excelling in no particular architectural style, it has pretty much every style in which anyone has ever built a church grafted to it. You could teach the history of architecture by simply standing next to it. And, while not particularly cohesive, it is very interesting to look at. I'd recommend at least 20 minutes just standing beside it and taking in everything that is going on.

“Amazing place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

I would not believe it if I hadn't seen it for myself. Just amazing. When you walk in it's like going back in time. I would highly recommend this place to visit.
