When driving by or staying nearby this area it's really worth the visit. It's an old ruin of a castle with an guided tour (possibility for audio guide). Cool history and even the possibility to go 18 meters underground!

Great spot to visit when nearby. The entry fee is only 3,5€ and you get a geocache for free :-) Great views from the ruined towers too

A wonderful old castle with dungeons (frightening!!!) and a lovely view. You can really experience the Middle Ages.

Nice for a quick visit. You won't learn anything new but it fits well in its environment. Try to walk to the castle from the school at the bottom of the hill through the forest. Cheap entrance and good service

No bar, and still in works but still nice to see. If you ask at the desk you can dress up your child as a real soldier of the middle age!

This place was so cool! I loved how old everything was. You can get a personal tour guide thingy in many languages. It was awesome to go down into the bunkers, scary little steps down into a dungeon like crevasse created centuries ago. They also...More
