Obviously a must see when in Krakow. Definitely an hour worth of exploring and going round. Didn't go into any of the exhibits or buildings as there was a queue and other reviews were not impressive.

We had a good stroll around Wawel castle grounds . Very very nice place , loads of history , loads of things to look at . I’d advise to wear comfortable footwear as the ground can be uneven at times.

This castle area is a collection of quirky buildings nestled together on a high point overlooking the river and makes a very impressive scene. It’s worth doing the walk around the base of the castle to get a good understanding of the scale and location....More

It’s not a steep walk, there is different entrances to the castle both have an incline but not steep, a gentle stroll should be sufficient to reach the castle grounds.
