You have to climb up and go all the way and wait for that magical sunset. A view you will not regret ever. The climb is an easy, safe climb so don't worry if not in top shape.

A must visit in the region although it's not very charming. It's an easy climb up. Top of the castle offers a great view. Cons: Binoculars on the top were broken. There were loose parts on the safety rails. It seemed to me there was...More
