  • You can spend hours here! Stunning views, in depth history, one of our favourite places to visit in Germany. Loved the viewing platform. Plenty of disabled and pushchair access. Very reasonably priced.
  • Went with the family on the cable car to the fort. Was really nice, just keep in mind when very hot day it will be unbearable for small kids! Luckily there is an amazing play park and a very nice little restaurant at the mini-golf.
