  • I must admit that the climb to the fortress we got in the car and don't walk, I think though that walk must be a nice walk. Very nice visit just external courtyards and the views from the top.

  • The Castle undergoes renovations. We couldn't get in. But outside the walls are beautiful. You can see the concern about safety of the season

  • The impressive-looking fortress is fun to conquer every single angle. Who wants to is certainly satisfied with the guides. For those who want to discover the adventurer and may dive in the middle ages, corners, paths, passages are abundant. The tour around the fortress endowed with fascinating views of Würzburg and surroundings. Nice to see the Kahn.
