Unlike most European castles, this one is peppered with explanations of local and regional history. I spent three hours reading and exploring; it was fascinating. I came away with a much more in-depth feel for how the local culture was formed. At noon there was...More

The Castel dominates the city skyline and overlooks the river. Today you can find here a nice museum and see the great view of the city and river

We thoroughly enjoyed checking out the castle. Did the whole thing in about 90 minutes, took great pictures and enjoyed all of the history on display. What's interesting about the Austrians, is that they take so much pride in laying everything out well. It made...More

The fortress has a little bit of everything to see. I would recommend downloading audio tour to your phone and bringing headphones. There is a very neat pipe organ that is played once a day- try to time your visit for this experience. The history...More
