Am pm and condition and has a clear view of organized.  360-degree view of course is served in its own way. Impressed with what old often built in places like this. The Museum can be seen in the ticket was out here soon.

  • Its a pretty cool castle and the hike is really fun. It would be better if only the castle was all original but sadly it isn't. It's a great view of the city also. The weirdest thing about the whole place is they have a 5 star bathroom at the top!!
