  • The visit of the fortress was really great. The signs of the different paths very well and you can only recommend views. The trail through the vineyards was especially nice. Here I go again at any time.

  • It's a beautiful place to walk about. Mußt be really lovely in summer. Beautiful view over Würzburg.
  • The fortress is interesting to visit, more like an afternoon walk. The walk starts with a hill climb but a nice one with city panorama view on the left. You can rest either on the banches along the staires or on the terrace at the fortress entrance with a beer. The fortress itself is an interesting building with nice details but not something sophisticated. Centre city to fortress visit and back ~2h.
  • Great views over the city! And very well maintained, was quite impressed.
  • Well maintained historic fort that invites for a walk around the area.
  • Very interesting great view of the old town from the top. Good a bit of a climb from the bottom if you struggle walking or need wheel chair access drive and park at the castle.
