Take your time walking the grounds and seeing the castle. Several great views. Restaurant on ground for drinks or lunch and dinner. Stairs leading down to old town and the river and bridge to Austria .

Fascinating castle built on the hill over looking the town. This is the longest castle in the world at 1km in length. A series of buildings make up an intriguing place to explore, while enjoying a pleasant walk. Amazing views. Free parking is available and...More
