We got married on the outside terrace of Malcesine Castle in August 2018 and it was utterly breath taking. The castle itself is stunning with amazing views. The Lake Garda Wedding team took care of us from the very beginning and everything was simple and...More

We were here about 10am, and it was great as it was quiet (even at the end of July). A lovely Castle with great views of the lake and over Malcesine. We enjoyed climbing up to the bell tower, and the small Museum near the...More

Worth a visit for sure. I think I have become a bit of a castle bore, but this was interesting to me and the views from the top of the tower are spectacular. Definitely worth a visit and fairly good value too.

Entry to the castello was reasonable and easy to purchase. We spent about 90 minutes exploring the castle- almost all of it was available to guests. The climb to the top of the tower is well worth it for the stunning views of the town...More

This castle sits on a peninsula in Malcesine and is a wonderful view while dining, shopping and swimming along the lake. It is easy to navigate on your own, with modern information stations about the castle and the area. Great for kids.
