  • Very expensive for what it is. You then have to pay for an audio guide on top or extra for a printed version. The falconry display was good but the castle is probably worth giving a miss.

  • The castle is in spectacular location and offers some great views. We were on a day trip so it was disappointing that we had to buy a Bouillon pass for three attractions, two of which we wouldn'tbe...

  • The castle is beautiful. The music creates a nice atmosphere to it. And the view from the castle is breathtaking. I was in hurry and couldn’t stay long but I’d love to go back one day. Oh, and the cafe in front of the castle is worth a visit! Simple but very delicious and the staff was super nice.
  • A very nice looking castle from early medieval period. It is in a good looking state despite not having a thorough restoration. The underground tunnels were fun to walk though, there was also a show with predator birds. The exhibitions I was not interested in, but are well put together for those who are. I gave a fifth star because the view of the castle upwards from the town is quite a spectacle
