  • I visited it three years ago(2014). Wasn't very excited about the sight since it's a fortress but its massive and kind of impressive because of its location ( Deutsche ecke is visible from there) pret...  more »
  • Impressive, definitely worth it, all the way to the gondola. And that for a reasonably affordable price. Nice walk and beautiful views and fine restaurant with limited card but be fine!

  • Historical worth, different panoramic views. Beautiful slide mounting with sound on the history of the fortress to date in the dungeons. Several museum rooms (including history of tobacco)

  • Huge place to visit. Great views available over the town and rivers below. Variety of museums and exhibitions on offer inside (random ones while we were there included a collection of ice-age animal models, and a very entertaining photography collection about puns on modern day life) plus lots of obligatory war-related stuff in the fortress. Gardens outside it were quite pleasant too.
  • The views are spectacular. The fortress is vaste but not impressive. Absolutely no information in English only German.
  • Audio guides were very detailed. Perhaps a bit too much as there was a time limit on them so we had to rush to complete it all. The exhibitions are well worth spending some time in them.
  • Awesome place but shocking rude service at the Kiosk selling wine and beer. The place had just closed (10 min early) and the lady rudely demanded glass be handed over and never even said thank you when we did. Will be taking my own drinks in future.
  • Tremendously big area, lots and lots of info cards, if you're lucky you'll get some nice views of the city
