Took a picnic lunch and hiked up to the castle. Serene setting and a wonderful view of the town and valley. Pretty cool to watch the train come out of the tunnel as it goes past the town.

This castle was on our list of many castles to visit. We enjoyed our family hike up the forest trails and enjoyed the spectacular views. The place is very dangerous for small unattended children. There are many areas that have straight drops. Still a very...More

Great experience. Visited during Family Day. The kids had a blast seeing all the crazy costumes. Actors did a great job engaging adults and children and keeping everyone having scary fun. Definitely recommended.
