Fun place to visit. It was an easy stroll with good coffee and.Apple strudel amd waffels at the end
Schloss Burg is a beautiful castle surrounded by a natural environment. Visiting the castle and its surrounding village is particularly interesting for children as they learn a lot about local architecture, culture and history.
Not only it looks like a fairytale, but also the prices are more then acceptable for such a castle. I more than recommend it. I had the time of my life there.
Nice place to spend a day. Also you can do hiking from Schaberg bf to Schloss Burg...around 5km. Refreshing views along the river and mungsten bridge. There are many nice restaurants around Schloss Burg.
Hill top castle with lovely views. The interior is a mix of museum and recreations of life in the castle in different historical periods. The look out in the tall tower is currently closed due to some building works. The cafés and restaurants in the burg are very good some with terraces with a view. The chair lift upto the castle is a brilliant way to arrive.
Nice place to see. The chair lifts are a must. Really nice view.
We went on a cold and wet day. Going inside the kasse was kind of warm and sheltered. It was under renovation and up-keeping. There were costumed persons playing various medieval roles. Thd armamentarium demos were authentic. Food and drinks around the castle was good.
So Germany is known for its castles and today I saw one: very accurately named 'Schloss Burg' or 'Castle Castle'. Unlike the 19th century Disneyland castles in Bavaria, this is a proper medieval fortress, used as the seat by the Graf (Count) von Berg from the 11th century until the castle was besieged by the Swedes in the Thirty Years War. I'm walking around here half expecting Maleficent to show up to curse the newborn princess. Better watch out for those spinning wheels.
Beautiful medieval castle with a romantic, steep gondola leading up from the base of the hill to the peak. Quaint and educational, this place is fun for the entire family. We saw a medieval style theater performance, where local actors told a story of a young farmer turned warrior who wanted to protect his family's honor in battle. A great way to spend an afternoon!
Excellent views, plenty of to eat! Very relaxed environment. Bring cash because most merchant and restaurant will except cash and there a lack of tour guides to take you you around the castle.
