The castle is now a youth hostel, but you can walk around and seem much of it. It's a very steep and challenging climb up. The view about 3/4 the way up and at the top are very worthwhile.

A better view and a cooler place to stay is hard to find. A beautiful castle with excellent breakfast despite being a hostel. Something you and the children will remember.

Sure. ..from the city centre you can take a taxi up to the castle. We went up by car, there is a parking spot next to the castle to park as well.
