  • Beautiful! The ruin is small and will not take more than 1 hour. Next you may like to explore the neighbouring area. It has got a good countryside and town around for a walk. ☺
  • Nice ruins, but I can't deny I was a bit disappointed. The ruins are just from one building only, so there's not really much to see. It's a nice area to have a walk and stop by for a coffee, though.
  • Nice view
  • Super easy to get to from the city and has a lot of old world charm to offer.
  • I love the castle ruins! There are many fun castle chambers and stairs with different color stones making up the castle walls. Lots of great picture opportunities and a great restaurant nearby!
