A short (but rather exhausting) walk uphill from the parking lot. But it's worth it. The tower has been renovated. The walls are in ruins, but still pretty cool. The road is paved and you can reach the site with a vehicle. There is a small parking lot up there. But beware, the road is pretty narrow. I love places like this, therefore 5 stars.

If you are in Podgarić definitely check out Garić Grad. You can reach it with the car.

Hohenwerfen Castle

Hohenwerfen Castle stands high above the Austrian town of Werfen in the Salzach valley. The castle is surrounded by the Berchtesgaden Alps and the adjacent Tennengebirge mountain range. The fortification is a 'sister' of Hohensalzburg Castle both dated from the 11th century.

The former fortification was built between 1075 and 1078 during the Imperial Investiture Controversy by the order of Archbishop Gebhard of Salzburg as a strategic bulwark. Gebhard, an ally of Pope Gregory VII and the anti-king Rudolf of Rheinfelden, had three major castles extended to secure the Salzburg archbishopric against the forces of King Henry IV: Hohenwerfen, Hohensalzburg and Petersberg Castle at Friesach in Carinthia.
