  • It's a castle. Nothing much about it, most of the shops were closed when we got here, so, only a few tourist serving places. The view at the top was great though, you can see panoramic views of Ankara. Ran into a few friendly locals here who fed us, and chatted with us, mostly in broken English and we used hand signs to reply to them sometimes. They even bought us gifts when we left. Overall, a good place at the top to relax and soak in the views. Maybe we just went on a wrong day. But on the plus side, almost no other tourists at all! Ha
  • There is more than one way to reach the castle. One is by the street with three museums, second is from the other side a steep street leading to lots of stairs, and thirdly through narrow winding streets with lots of small shops. The third was my favorite though I think going through the stairs is a pretty nice experience, too. Don't miss the stairs leading to the top once you reach the castle. There is nothing really at the top, but an amazing view of Ankara. Visit the three museums before leaving and buy some handmade things and accessories. One of the best things to do in Ankara.
  • It's a nice place to go with a group of friends and take pictures in its streets and In front of the nice views of Ankara city from the top of the castle. You can go up in the morning or late at the evening to watch the sun rise or sunset. It will be amazing!
  • Very interesting and eye-catching place. A must see in Ankara. Replete with lovely small traditional shops, cafés, restaurants, etc. It is not really a castle like Edinburgh or Lisbon castle but I do believe that it is still worths seeing and spending around 2 hours to browse the shops and an extra 2 hours for cafe/ restaurant.
  • You can park our car outside the gate and then walk to inside. There is no entry fee for the castle. When you look down you can get a spectacular panoramic views of the city. You can also find a lot of souvenir shops and street vendors around.
