    The castle was very interesting, thoroughly enjoyed it. However, the area where we were to meet was nowhere near the castle, very confusing. We stayed on the shuttle bus from our ship and went in the gate with all the other passengers. The gate attendee looked at our tickets, wasn’t quite sure where we were supposed to have met but let us in anyway.

    The castle is well worth a visit !!! It is generally advisable to take a shuttle transfer / bus to the castle. It is sometimes not allowed on foot, or even difficult to reach the castle. If on foot, then via the skyway walk, but please with very good shoes, fitness and enough time - it is relatively steep uphill. As a cruise tourist, you are not allowed to cross the port area on foot, here a free shuttle bus is provided to and from the city, to the castle. -A wonderful, uncomplicated, entertaining- informative day with an unbeatable view (in good weather) is certain!

    Really worth seeing

    Although the entrance fee is high, I have to say; any time. Parking is free and you are allocated a place. The castle grounds are huge and cool to discover. Sometimes actors are there and perform. It is also worth visiting the WWII tunnels - it takes 40 minutes and is animated with films in a very modern way. Some are original documents and devices. there (not replica). Any time!
