Very cool place I had a lot of fun exploring the castle. Restaurant in the front has good food and beer. The view was amazing! English speaking but that should be a given being so close to the air base.

You have the choice to drive and park at the top or walk up the dirt trails. Take care if there has been recent rain as it will be muddy and could be quite slick on some steep spots. The castle isn't that great. It...More

There were no special events going on, but it was still a good visit for us. They have a family entrance deal for € 8. The view is impressive. The restaurant is reasonably priced and has really good food. If you like the rolled penny...More

Worth the effort as the ruins are interesting and the view is expansive. The restaurant at the site is supposed to have very good food. I didn't eat but had a relaxing drink while taking in the view of the ruins and the surrounding countryside....More
