  • Nice park with great views. The funicular is way too slow and crowded on busy days to the point that you should forget about getting on it. The church nearby is very nice. The fortress itself is almost entirely built in recent years, so not really authentic.
  • a good "eco path" for a short hike. The complex is "renovated", in this case meaning they build over it to "preserve" the natural look... not even close...
  • A renovated fortress. The expositions are nothing you can't see at the history museum, but the place is nice. You can either hike for half an hour to the fortress or get there by lift.
  • Awesome place for the people interested in history, castles, ruins, archaeology. The one negative is that every time I have visited the lift has broken down the day before. Or you might take it as a positive, cause you will walk up the tourist path.
  • Good idea and lots of money have been invested in this place. However, the multiple renovations left me with the feeling the place is brand new and not centuries old. On the other hand, it is great place to have a walk around.
