We are able to walk around the outside and take a few photos. 65 Lei entrance to the first floor and more for the higher floor plus photo fee. A little run down but interesting. And a good uphill walk to get there.

We visited the castle in the autumn and it was absolutely fantastic. Inside and outside is a wonderful piece of art, worthy of your time. Don't miss it if you visit Romania.

We stayed in an Airbnb in Sinaia and used it as a base to go to Bran and Brasov. Peles is right in Sinaia. Have fun.
