  • Enjoyed our visit to this castle as part of a Viking River Cruise. Guide was knowledgeable and spoke great English. There are a lot of stairs and uneven ground so if you have trouble with either, just be aware.
  • A beautiful castle with a nice tour. Took the tour which was around 11 euros. It was very informative and had plenty of variety in the rooms and castle layout. Highly recommend it if you enjoy medieval history. The tour was offered in either English or German at different times.
