I'm sure it's better if you speak German because the tour is not in any other language, but it was pretty cheap and cool to look at anyway. You have to park in a public lot about 10 minutes down the hill, but the caretakers...More

The castle was already closed when we arrived but we walked in the castle area and took some pictures. There is a chapel on the hill, a Neo-Romanesque sepulchre chapel. From the chapel area you have a beautiful view of Mespelbrunn
