Went there to see the castle, but I was surprised by the size, the stories and how big and how well taken care of the castle actually is. The ticket is very cheap for the experience you get. I paid 2€... more »
A fabulous place, well worth a visit. Not expensive with the option to buy a ticket with added attractions like museums nearby which can be used at a later date. Great climbing all over it and with safe turrets for little people to look out over the lovely views. Dog friendly. Great little cafe bar with play area and sun loungers. A few hours flew past with a small child and dog to look after.
Visited late afternoon and that was a great idea. Hardly any people, quiet and in time for the sunset which is very impressive. Great views from the hill. Entry 6 euro for adults and children are 2 euro.
