  • Under a bright sun, the discovery of this place which hosts the University of the city and an archaeological museum is a must. The calm of the place is an invitation to NAP... And the view when you're on the ramparts is breathtaking!

  • The castle itself is nice, but not remarkable as castles go. What I like most is that it's open, accessible, and integrated into the city better than many other I've visited. It's easy to wander in and check it out without having to make a trip out of it.
  • Loved it, the view of the city below alone is enough for you to visit this place.
  • I am trying to visit and see a wooden carving artefact from New Zealand which was presented to Joseph Banks during Captain Cooks visit to New Zealand in 1769. The artefact was presented by our tribal queen Hinematioro to Mr Banks during this visit. Information provided is, the wooden artefact being housed in the Tubingen Museum of ethnology, Germany. Would this be the location of the artefact? Thanks and regards
  • Go there!
