Short but nice with nice views and place to take photo. We did not visit the museum but the location is nice and very nice to have a view of the city and mountains in the vicinity.

This was the first European castle for me to visit. It was small but had plenty of interesting exhibits. I arrived on a rainy day and had the castle pretty much to myself. I enjoyed looking at the different displays and historic artifacts.
