“Excellent view from the castle tower”
Reviewed 19 July 2013

A must when you visit Bamberg - and totally woth the walk up the hill! After passing rolling meadows and some lush forest you reach the medieval castle, where you can refresh yourself with an ice-cold Mahrs and the majestic view...

“Nice view but not a lot else”
Reviewed 13 July 2013

As already stated the view from the castle is nice and if you pay a euro then you can go up the tower too. However the restaurant is rather pricey and there isn't much else to do. If the weather is sunny and you want a breath of fresh air then make your way up to Altenburg but otherwise it's not really worth the walk.

“A very lovely setting and view”
Reviewed 9 June 2013

We drove up there on a Sunday morning and it was very quiet. It is however worthwhile for the beautiful view. There was no charge for this.

“Altenburg Castle”
Reviewed 14 March 2013

A very simple castle in Bamberg. Unfortunately there is no tour because most of the castle was destroyed and rebuilt. If you do get the chance to go make sure you walk up the tower to see a spectacular view of Bamberg.
