  • Great views over the valley and interesting historic tour with information about the usage of the castle from being a royal hunting lodge to its role in the peasant uprising. The guided tour is mandatory but worth it. Didn't see the falconry as we were running short on time but the rest was already worth it.
  • Saw the castle on our way to Eisriesenwelt (Ice Caves) and took photo. Have to come again to visit the impressive medieval castle and watch the falcon show.
  • Loved this place, well looked after, good staff and plenty to see. The falconry show is the best I've seen with upto 5 Eagles in flight at the same time.
  • Quite nice Austria castle... 15 minutes from main road by foot, so you can quickly reach it.
  • Beautiful castle, funny tour guide and spectacular bird show. Worth a visit!
