Absolutely gorgeous, and the tour is fantastic. I'm not sure why another reviewer said they could not take photos; there was only one room of the castle where photos were not allowed. Very worthwhile!

3 Euros to visit the grounds (no interior photos) & another 4 Euros for the hourly guided tour - not really worth it. Take pics from below & call it good!

Harburg Castle, Looming over the Wörnitz River. The medieval Castle covered by parapets, towers, turrets, keep and red-tiled roofs of the 12th-century. Schloss Harburg is so perfectly preserved they almost seem like a film set.
