This is about 10 KM from the city and luckily we went there in our own car, so distance was not a problem. By the side of Danube, atop the hill, surrounded by a small and beautiful village - the setting can not be better...More

Hi, I'm not sure if you can book in advance but it any case it's never that busy. The ticket booth was empty when we went mid morning and will only take you a minute or so to buy tickets. Enjoy!
