  • If you are holidaying in the area of Stuttgart or Tübingen is definitely worth a visit. The easiest way to achieve this is the machine, although you can alternatively take the bus to Honau and get a good walk in the Woods. The castle is small but cute; You can enter the courtyard, or choose to do a guided tour inside the building. Not far away, an adventure playground and a beautiful brewery. I had the pleasure of visiting this castle in March after a snowfall and the atmosphere was really fabulous. Perhaps the most beautiful castle I saw in southern Germany!

  • Beautiful, relatively small castle on a beautiful place. We have only the garden visited which cost €6,-. Best pricey for something where you can walk through it in 10 min. Be fun to see if you're in the area, but not comparable to e.g. Neuschwanstein.

  • The view of this castle from every single angle is breathtaking. It is fitting that this place is rooted in fairytale. I almost wished I hadn't hiked up the cliff but refreshments were for sale at the castle, dispelling all regrets of the hike.
  • Great and recommendable place to visit. Very interesting. And the surroundings are beautiful
  • Castle is currently in renovation, so not visible​ in full beauty. But still nice views from up there.
  • Beautiful castle situated at the top of a mountain on a cliffside. Picturesque views of the town below. The cost for adults is only 2€. There is also a nice playground and a ropes course available as well.
  • I beautiful place to see: a small castle on a cliff with spectacular view and great selfie and pictures opportunity.
