The castle offers nice views to the countryside, but the castle itself was a small disappointment. Entrance to the main building was not allowed.

Ok, so we have been to Bamberg 5 times and never made it hear. This is in walking distance from where we visit. This trip our son pointed it out and suggested a visit. It is a great little schloss to visit. You can climb the tower for a Euro, and there are many great spots for pictures. Enjoy this quiet little Schloss, a nice diversion from crowded Bamberg.

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...

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.
