  • From the parking lot it goes steeply up. It comes through 14 different goals. Each is different. The view is gorgeous in any direction. Above, you can visit the armoury and gets some info from the leader to the owners and the Castle. In the courtyard, there is a large beer garden. You get delicious Carinthian dishes in the restaurant and beer garden.

  • Has twice been to the medieval market at the Castle, and have enjoyed it every time. See, in particular, theater pieces and Knight fighting-and eat a delicious lunch in the meantime.

  • But it was not open and you couldn't walk through even one of the gates on Dec 23,2016. Still worth the drive, as there was a gyrocopter field and sledding hill nearby! Beautiful castle!  more »

  • Just 12 euro to get in with beautiful views all around. I was surprised that there was a restaurant on top that served beer and great good and it was cheap. Well needed after 800 m walking to get to the top.
  • I have been to this Castle 4 times and this coming week I will go again to show my son from Australia and partner for the first time. I really enjoy this but hope the elevator is fixed as I can no longer walk that far up hill. It has always worked in the past so hope it's ok .
  • Nice castle, we spent here a lot of very nice time. Beautiful view from castle and to castle. The elevator is not working yet, but it doesnt matter, věca use it is great wall through each gate. If you will be near, then visit it.
  • The castle is nice but there is not much to see inside.. and for that it's overpriced,12€ is way too much for what it offers.. although it's very preserved and the view up is very nice..
  • Elevator is broken. Be prepared to walk up. Beautiful views. Interesting architecture. There are some odd role play/time period photos of the family in the cellar area.
