  • A very nice castle. I liked it a lot. On the hill, above very beautiful little town. Parking lot is free of charge. There is also a nice Cafe/restaurant on the site. Museum inside castle is very interesting. There are so many interesting things to see and learn. Staff was more then friendly and polite and very professional and helpful. For every recommendation.
  • .. did this with a tour guide and it was worth it.. Daniel, the guide, did a great job...quite like how displays are well maintained... in spite of the fog, found myself to have enjoyed the visit
