  • We had valentine's dinner there. It was a pre-selected menu so it probably does not represent the normal selection, and it was non-impressive, more of a mismatch of different dishes. Having said that....  more »

  • It's a hike, but the views are amazing! You can see for miles. The castle lets your mind wander to a time long ago. We were there before it opened so we didn't eat at the cafe, but it is still one of the best stops we made while in Germany.
  • If you love old castles and ruins, or just incredible views, this is a place for you. The castle is in ruins but there is enough there to really envision what it must have looked and felt like to live there. As a bonus there is no admission and a restaurant there. There was very few people there when we went through it. There is however, no real information about the castle ruins on site. It is a self "tour" so do your research first if you like history. The view is incredible from the tower and other vistas on site. HINT: If you don't feel like a hike to get up to the castle, simply drive up to it the back way.
