This fortress is visible as you draw near and is a breathtaking sight way up on it's peak. We enjoyed a wonderful afternoon climbing up and wandering about. The views are spectacular and we did luck out with our weather. A fun outing for families...More

Don’t miss this fun tour of the castle. It is informative and well worth the price and the time to tour.

Beautiful historical (medieval) building. Comfortably accessible, with a quite big parking place at the foot of the mountain, and a nice cable car is taking you automatically - the ticket can be bought (for the cable car and for visit the museum) in the bar...More
