  • Fun and interesting destination. Nice village at the foot of the castle with a few good restaurants. Castle has a natural fridge which I never experienced/saw. Clear map with explanations for an educational route through the Castle. From the Tower a beautiful view!

  • Well worth a visit because of the very realistic impression that one getting there what life there must have been used. Well preserved and beautiful renovation work.

  • Do not miss the guided tour. The guide is very interesting and humorous. Guess why he lugs around a bottle of murky water during the visit?

  • Visited in 2014 on the recommendation of a nice local that we met at the shopping center not far from here. We are from Australia and didnt really know what was in the area, but we are grateful for the information that was given to us. Its quite amazing to see these castles from a bygone era. We have nothing like this at home. Simply amazing.
