A lovely walk around the castle towards the down town city. Do it after the castle visit only if you have time to spend and you saw all the must’s. Enjoy a walk.

The castle was beautiful, but it is so vast, we really couldn’t do it justice in a few hours. We tried to see it without a ticket since there are many outdoor areas, but when it started to rain we needed more indoor options.

Well worth a visit. Basic entry is free but you need tickets for several areas. Worth the cost. 3 to 4 hours needed.

Take tram to top of castle hill and get off at castle entrance. Then meander down thru the castle ( largest in Europe) and then walk through the alleys towards the river. Go early early to avoid the crowds if tourists

We took a trolly car and it was very easy. The way they sell tickets is very confusing and requires some thought. You need to buy various tickets for various parts of the castle and it is hard to know what you are signing up...More
