  • Well laid out attraction, though the English commentary could have been expanded vs in German language.

  • Nice and well preserved castle, easy to access by walking (25’ approx) or by car (5’) from the old town - Very nice views and outside area and close to other attractions in Pottenstein so you can plan together with other activities. FYI - part of the castle is privately owned and cannot be visited.
  • Very cool old castle, only complaint would be that I wish the posters had English as well. But Google translate did get some of them.
