They do guided tours, but they have a schedule, better to ask first. For a person with mobility difficulties it is not recommended as there are many stairs and high height. Better to enter first through the first door as soon as you enter as it has a large screen of cloth where it explains the history of the castle and once you travel that stretch go to the red arrow "nord" since the other the green "west" already you go straight to the church and then you would have to re-enter through the main entrance to see the other stretch.
Beautifully maintained, breath taking views. This is an excellent example of the castle architecture from that time period. Totally worth walking through. more »
Highly recommended. The castle looks amazing and the Rampart walks are amazing. Easily worth the price. The place is absolutely beautiful and the views are astounding - so much I chose to propose to my girlfriend there.
Magical medieval village and castle experience. Plan to stay for hours. Have a meal or just a coffee and take time to shop. I suggest the castle tour by voiced machine, but it can be frustrating to use.
