  • Well, it's the longest Castle in Europe hold and therefore applies to run, run, run..., until you get the really - inside - accessible part is. Whether or not the 20 minutes forced March at say Draschwetter, or how us worth 30 degrees in the shade everyone itself must entscheiden.im latter case do you have Flüsssiges in any case against dehydration with him, because to drink can buy it only in the penultimate Court. There are no benches to rest on the track (or I have not seen it?) The two museums are there value at the end of the line in my opinion not of the March. In one of the paintings, which took place in the old nor the new Pinakothek still in the Schloß Schleißheim hang, the City Museum with medieval Department is quite lovingly designed. Expected I had other, the widow's seat and the Treasury of the electors still properly furnished rooms for example.

  • It is a beautiful castle, you can also take a walk go and not only by itself but also with friends and Bekanden. We are very often at the Castle. It is worth also below the Castle, to make the small lake.

  • I liked the view over the river and for the Austrian side. The central part of the castle is very well preserved and it feels like we are in the XVI century.
  • What an awesome view of old town. A great walk too
  • Longest castle in the world. Nice but not spectacular.
  • The world's longest castle is a hidden gem!
  • This is a beautiful old castle. There are informational signs throughout. It is open to the public and we were free to walk around. It appears that people are living in parts of it still as apartments. We very much enjoyed our time here.
