We got married here in 2016, its a beautiful setting and with such history, the view from the top is amazing although no easy feat in a wedding dress to get there, lovely little piece of history and forever fond memories, definitely worth a visit

Good history, well laid out, and informative. Only flaw, it only caters for German and Italian speakers. Can't understand why there was no translation into English !!!! Shame.
