We walked around the castle with the walking ticket, plenty of information is provided about its history. It takes ca. 1 hour. One can take nice pictures

Nice battlements to walk and city views, but nothing special. We've visited many european castle ruins and this one was average, but interesting.

Can you ever see enough castles when you travel through Europe? I think not! They may seem the same but they all have their own history and unique features. This one is no different. I like the fact that there are still ruins in it...More
