  • With the cable car, one of the oldest in Germany, you can go to the Castle (We have already been a few times above me the car but no parking lot). A walk can also but someone in our company had any sense in here after the walk that we in the Neanderthal had done that day. A times over come you have a wonderful view of a beautiful castle. There are also many restaurants, however, it was the times that we were so busy that we could drink another beer. Too bad but unfortunately.

  • Always worth a trip for the whole family, all-weather. On many weekends, there are also medieval markets take place. Gastronomically, a lot is available.

  • We go up to the Castle walk (there is of 80 to 100 metres in height...) or by a highly appreciated seat children but also their parents TV... In this sunny afternoon and the polar cold, many players rushed in the cafes to enjoy their traditional waffles. Take time to meander in the forest along the Wupper River to the metal railroad bridge: the ballad is very nice without a vehicle. Going up the river by the right bank, you need to use a tray suspended manual powered to cross the river Wupper. Great view to the bridge 106 meters higher.

  • Beautiful medieval castle with a romantic, steep gondola leading up from the base of the hill to the peak. Quaint and educational, this place is fun for the entire family. We saw a medieval style theater performance, where local actors told a story of a young farmer turned warrior who wanted to protect his family's honor in battle. A great way to spend an afternoon!
  • Great little find while on holiday. Easy to navigate through with special little rooms to explore. Amazing history, some places undergoing restoration. The finish product should be amazing.
  • Really love this place. Was our 2nd visit. Well kept and interesting.
  • Nice location for events like weddings. Great food (made by Schützenhaus Remscheid)
  • Closed on Monday's, came back the following Sunday only find out at the inside entrance they are closing at 2 for a private party. No notice on the web site or at the gate. Beautiful scenery outside, mostly all restaurants, the main castle is still under remodeling. It would have been lovely to see especially traveling over 8000 miles to get here.
