This partly restored castle occupies a wonderful location at the end of the old town area, overlooking the river and a public park that gives no hint of the conflict that it saw when it was the target of Teutonic knights.

I have decided a castle is everything I wanted in a rental property and more. I have always wanted to be king for a day, but why not be king for a life time. I will be just and stern over my tenants (Subjects) as that is what is required of a good monarch. Although those who are late on... More

Hidden away at the back of the old town, but right by the river, this is an interesting place to visit. There is a small museum inside and some good views down the river.

Fabulous history, scenic, architectural delights, the whole area was thrilling! So many things to notice and snap a picture or a hundred! They do interesting things with plantings, every thing so nice and neat and a touch of whimsy here and there. We loved it and would repeat the whole tour when we go back!

More of a tower rather than a castle. Nicely refurbished with some decent historical artefacts inside. Not much time is required here. I was only here for about 20mins. Something to visit whilst in the Old Town
