The castle looks great, but if you can't go inside then there isn't much else to do. Walk around the castle for some nice views.

The castle was closed during our visit but it is a beautiful building to see from the outside non the less. There was a beautiful monastery nearby and another small building with the same stonework as the castle. Would love to see the inside.

Beautiful views and interesting castle. There was an eerie painting of the owner which I liked. Felt like it was watching me. The staff said the castle is haunted and that strange things happen while they are working there. It was a fun way to...More

Enjoyed the tour of this lovely, historical site on top of the mountain. Short, but interesting. In summer, attended at outdoor concert on the lawn. Beautiful setting.
