  • Massive castle very close to Augsburg, not as known as many others in Bavaria, but also worth a visit. You can buy entry ticket for yard, or extra for guided tour around the castle. Castle is being built upon for past 800 years so it does have rich history behind it. You can also take a walk through the forest around the castle with some nice views, as well as enjoy a meal in a great but bit pricey restaurant. Overall great package for a daily visit.
  • Beautiful castle 🏰 We took the guided tour and it was great. Detailed, but not too much to be boring. The tour was in German(witch not all in our friend group understand), but we had English brotures and the guide talked very well in English too. And the views around the grounds are amazing too. We did visit the restaurant too and ate amazing German food. Definitely recommend spending some time here ☺️
