When driving by or staying nearby this area it's really worth the visit. It's an old ruin of a castle with an guided tour (possibility for audio guide). Cool history and even the possibility to go 18 meters underground!

Great spot to visit when nearby. The entry fee is only 3,5€ and you get a geocache for free :-) Great views from the ruined towers too

A wonderful old castle with dungeons (frightening!!!) and a lovely view. You can really experience the Middle Ages.

This place was so cool! I loved how old everything was. You can get a personal tour guide thingy in many languages. It was awesome to go down into the bunkers, scary little steps down into a dungeon like crevasse created centuries ago. They also...More
