This castle is pretty much in ruins, but there's plenty of signage and information to let you know its history and what it used to look like. There's still enough for a lot of climbing, walking and exploring, and we found it extremely interesting. Recommend...More

The visit was wonderful. We got the kids adventure package and spent half the time travelling the woods up to the castle finding clues to the mystery questions. We all learned the most this way and it was fun, even my teens were eager. Then...More

This is the perfect spot for a hike. 4 castles in the mid of a beautiful national park. Fleckstein is the only one that is not free.
