it was the 1st time I took my boy to visit a Fortress!! we were unfortunatly expecting more things from the Middle Age. there was only 1 room with knight's armours. the Canons outside were phenomenal.

This fortress was beautiful! We enjoyed our visit to it immensely! It was worth the 11 Euros each that we had to pay. The apple strudel in the fortress cafe was delicious too! Beautiful place!

We went on a rainy day and we weren't too keen seeing on the battlements and other outside areas, so this is really about the inside bits. The place obviously has very good potential but is let down by poor curation. The leaflet they give...More
