  • Friendly people, up to date museum shop and small exhibition; very clean and modern toilets. But because of lack of time had no time to visit the big exhibition. But we definitely will come back in...

  • Lovely historical castle that stretches 1km across the hilltop, parking is available on site but limited at busy times, you can park within a few 100m and walk to the castle fairly easily. Entry is free to the site with a museum section which charges a fee. Nice eateries available and public facilities in multi locations.
  • Just walking the grounds is worth the trip. Walk up to the inner castle, then down to the shops in altstadt (old town) for good shopping and great food. Bring good walking shoes!
