The tour was great, except for the fact that they didn't have an English one, so I was left to interpret for the kids, which is not always ideal. However, we enjoyed viewing the fortifications, the cannons, and the exhibits. Of course the underground passages were a big hit, too.

This fortress was besieged but never taken. Technically this not a castle but a fortress. Tours unfortunately only in German, but still worth taking as you get to see the inner sanctum and tunnels. A visit supports the citizens of Kronach as they bought the fortress from the state in the 19th century and the state of Bavaria does not... More

We have visisted many times and there are always new improvements. There are tours and also an art gallery in the castle. The restaurant at the castle is wonderful, both indoor and outdoor seating. Never have we been disappointed.

The highlight of our trip was the visit to this old castle in Kronach. The only negative was the long uphill road to get to the castle. Once to the top, we were very glad that we made the trip. We had an excellent guide who explained the historical significance of this old castle, and its surroundings. One warning-be sure... More

Stayed in the tower while in town for a wedding. And going in not having any idea of the place (someone from Kronach booked it for us), I was pleasantly suprised about the hotel. The rooms were clean and very nice, breakfast was provided every morning, the grounds were great to just wander on, could walk down the hill to... More
