  • This 16th century fortress was built on top of a rocky outcrop. Today can be reached on foot, along a steep trail, or with a cable car, offering a beautiful view of the surrounding territory. Charming inner courtyard, as well as the chapel castellana frescoed. Interesting collection of ancient weapons.

  • The particularity of this castle is the presence of a road along the Hill on which it stands, with walls that surround, and that takes you to the castle itself. On top of the castle there is a nice Museum to visit and there is also a restaurant/tavern where you can dine. To visit.

  • We decided to visit the Christmas market at the Castle. The rise and the castle itself have typical knightly flair. Also the information around is very interesting. Unfortunately, the Christmas market itself not so heady, was that the journey would have paid off. After all, it was a beautiful trip

  • 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.
