I can safely say I have never visited a historical site where there was less regard or respect for its maintenance or conservation or its historical items than this Burg. It is a blatant money-spinner, and 100s of tourists are kept flowing through with no...More

This is a wonderful self guided tour of one of the oldest castles in Germany. Full of history and interesting sites. The views of Bodensee are amazing from the castle windows.

This over 1000 year old castle is almost a picture book edition of the middle ages. You can have a self-guided tour, but I would recommend to take a guided tour that also takes you up in the tower. You will get more insight into...More
