We visited this castle in July 2017. We went there using the little train from the HKK hotel departure point. I loved the train journey and loved being able to see the changing view as we went. The train guide did not speak English so...More

We quickly walked round the castle and from its location you have a great view of the Brocken. The courtyard is any Princess's dream with a little frog in the fountain. We'd definitely go back and look inside. Even viewing the castle from street level...More

I arrived rather late so was unable to venture inside but frankly not sure that I would have bothered even if able. It just did not seem to offer anything and is not really old. We used the town tourist train to access.

If you like hill walking then this is for you because the climb is 800m long from the bottom to top at about 12deg, or you can pay €6 per head and catch the transport (kiddies train) from the Main carpark or around town whilst...More
