Went there early morning, not crowded and it was a nice climb through a park. However, there is a construction going on, and I understand the funicular train is closed. So you need to climb a wide path of cobblestone slope.

Fine view over the city. Easy to appreciate its strategic significance. Be a bit careful when walking on the stoned path.

Castle Hill looks nice from a distance and I wanted to go inside and see the views but the funicular wasn't working so I couldn't get there with a bad knee

Walking up the cobblestone trail to the tower is steep and taxing but the view from the top is great, you can have a first hand look at the river and the town. Worth the effort!

It's worth the walk to the top of the cobbled stone road or you can pay 1 euro for the funicular. Great views of Old Town and the city from up top even if you don't pay to climb the tower.
