  • The castle sits on a hill in a picturesque valley surrounded by imposing mountains. When the sky was blue the contrast in colours of the castle walls, windows and ramparts make for some great photos. ...  more »

  • Amazing views! The guided tour was nice, which is included if you buy the tram ticket. If thou can speak Deutch, you can listen to a live guide, otherwise you listen to the audio guide. As you enter the church to wait for the guide to start, press 1 right away. That's a very long one. The falcon show is a must! It can get very windy and cold up there, so take a jacket with you.
  • What a fantastic place for kids! We were there on a cold and cloudy day, but it didn't feel like it. The castle has many rooms and areas to explore. My wife took the tour (she said it was very interesting), I stayed with the kids and we made our own tour. In every corner there's some cannon or exhibit that the kids enjoyed, but the best part is the main yard with the play exhibits - the kids didn't want to go. We had to buy them swords and mace so they can continue playing as knights at home. The bird show was very impressive, but be aware - they use mice to feed the vultures...
  • There is lift to the top. Twice a day there is show with hunting birds (11-15 and 15-00). Inside there was interesting exposition of Da Vinchi inventions.
  • Such a nice side trip when driving for a while. A bit expensive but if you get there on time you get an amazing big bird show! Like the gigantic eagle comes 1m from you!
  • Amazing place. Very nice museum of weapons, outstanding hunting birds show
