  • You should not pass this Weir. The castle is one of the largest castles in Europe and is very well preserved. We have can not visit the Interior, because the castle is closed in the winter for tourists. The external overall impression is so impressive that we shall certainly return in the summer. You must visit this castle!

  • Nice views in Harburg. No tourists in March. Narrow streets, the spirit of old Germany. Nice view point.
  • Small castle with a fascinating history, and a really nice restaurant. We had a lovely afternoon there.
  • The girl at the shop selling our tickets could have been more helpful by volunteering info such as the time for the next tour as nothing was explained when I bought the tickets. The tour and our guide on the other hand were excellent. It takes a full hour to complete the guided tour (only option).
  • Really interesting and very different from other castles we toured. This castle is much more about defense against enemies than the showiness of the castles built by King Ludwig.
  • Great castle. Good climb up from the river way below. There is a road up to parking by the castle if you're feeling lazy.
