Visited on a weekend when no special actives on. A nice castle ruins with a great view of the surrounding area. The kids enjoyed the stocks, stilt walking, the climb to the top and the underground well.

The castle offers a very interesting guided tour of about 45 mins and two shows of about 45 mins each. The tour is very instructive and the guide has been great. The bird show is a must see!

We visited out of season so it was quiet with no shows running but we still loved it - would have really liked the shows but not to be...there's always next time! There's a tremendous gift shop and the staff are very friendly and helpful
