  • I was there 2 x now (December 2015 and September 2016) and I think that I will be at some point surely there once. I like very much this castle and the Outlook certainly always attracts photographers and videographers. Simply great how far you can see. See my YouTube channel have I uploaded a little video with the name walk to Castle Greifenstein.

  • An impressive castle ruins. It can beat many of the bells at the Bell Museum. The acoustics in the exhibition rooms is very good. It's great also for children.

  • Impressive, remarkable ruins. It houses a museum where you can learn a lot about bells in a part. After a visit, you can hear the chimes with different ears. Beautiful destination. Good with accessible by car.
