Turmberg is one of the places that are worth visiting. The view is great. There are stairs and benches where you can sit and chill while watching the sunset. It would be good if there were any shops or restaurants but I didn't see.

Despite the area being busy with tourists the funicular was not running. This was a feature of the entire city most attractions only being open at weekends. Anyway the staircase was never ending and the stairs in a dangerously poor condition

We made a special effort to arrive here near sunset! It was definitely worth it and the many couples there made it obvious that it's a must see spot!

Turmberg castle was mostly destroyed by invaders, but the tall lookout tower has been preserved. It is a great scenic walk by many, many steps up to the base of the tower (or there is a ride provided for a fee). The walk is good...More

Beautiful views, on a clear day you can see forever. Nice play area for kids. Have seen the rope walkways, not had a chance to try it yet. But definitely is on the 'To Do' list.
