Beautiful set of ruins. Large parking lot with a number of cafes and restaurants. Located on top of a hill, the trail is a little steep and slippery in some places. Nice views from the top. There is an observation tower with a telescope.

You need to visit the castle of Olsztyn when you are here. In very good condition and with a museum of different exhibitions. Beside you have a perfect view from the tower. Prices are OK.
