It is definitely worth while to visit this site. It offers you a bird's-eye view of the wheat fields and plains below, and gives you a peaceful feel for the land.

Just a neat experience and if you know local history it helps even more. Bit of a windy road to get up to it but well worth it. They are working to keep it preserved better.

They have restored the castle and bathrooms. It's a great view and offers plenty of opportunities for amazing photos. I would recommend timing your outing to include sunset and don't forget your picnic basket.

I was surprised by this castle. I could imagine it being an actual castle. You walk into the tower to enter and come to the steps up to the second level. The steps are steep and narrow and since I have walking issues I did...More

A very cool castle that has been reinforced recently. A great place to hike, walk, watch the sunrise or watch the sunset. Outdoor grills available for cooking and bathrooms as well. Also a great place to slope soaring and glide RC.

We had a small rental car and easily got up to the top with 4 adults in the car. Just go slow and watch for people coming down from above. The castle is neat, and the sunset was wonderful.
