  • Have visited the fortress in the context of our holiday. What can I say? Many empty spaces, but still interesting to look at. The spaces that are not empty, are equipped with an exhibition and art installations. Despite beautiful weather, we were virtually alone on the entire site. Unfortunately, only the lower and middle Fort can be made without a guide, the upper one comes only with management (through a tunnel from the bottom). You can tell a lot of time and money was put into this object, all buildings are equipped with new doors and fire alarm systems, also need get no stairs if you want to not because all elevators were installed. The area between the middle and lower fortress especially I liked (see photos on the site). If you look at what has been done this justifies acting pretty steep ticket prices of €7 / adults b.z.w. €5 for students. But, it has become a very nice place which is well worth a visit. Even though it has 25 ° C and more as well as Sunshine out there, it is very cold in the buildings because they are built partially into the rock and made of solid rock. You should bring along so an extra fleece or sweater ;)
