We didn't enter the castle proper (or I may have rated higher!) but walked all around the grounds. There is a cost to go in and you are limited to what you see for free (understandable). We enjoyed seeing where the original windows had been...More

There is no parking at the top. The two ways to get up are via walking or taking the funicular railway.

the dogs are allowed on the premises of the castle, but I am not sure about the funicular, you can always walk to the castle, very nice track
