  • A perfect fairytale castle as one approaches. The climb up was hard work for a 78 year old but the views were rewarding. Don't expect dramatic interiors. The gateways as one climbs are the feature. A ...  more »
  • 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 »

  • The only one Austrian castle that wasn't conquered by the enemy. Amazing view when you are looking from the side on it. The lift was out of order but it turned out for the best. The weather was fine and we walked through all 14 gates. In castle there is interesting armory museum. Also there was tall friendly guide we chatted about different things.
  • We stayed there in 1963, whilst attending an international falconry festival, as guests of the Duke, when it was a private residence. It was wonderful to stand below the castle and watch a pair of Imperial Eagles being flown from the top by a Japanese falconer. Less impressive was a banquet provided in the castle hall towards the end of our stay.
  • In my opinion the most impressive castle in Austria - "outstanding" in every way! Nice walk through the 14 gates with views all around. On top you can refill your energy in a nice restaurant and visit the museum. Highly recommend!
  • Impressive castle with 14 gates, each different. Great views! Interesting museum and nice restaurant at the top with a vegan option on the menu. Recommended for the whole family!
  • Huge fortress with impressive fortifications and a very cool museum. There's a cafe in the courtyard and several spots to get souvenirs.
