The castle is privately owned and may not be entered

The ruin is no longer accessible. You are also regularly informed that you are on private property, that access is prohibited and that there is a danger to life. Unfortunately, very little can be seen of the ruins. It's a pity, considering that a lot of history was written here.

If you can get a glimpse of it, it's actually quite beautiful. But since the owner leaves everything overgrown and doesn't want you to go near the ruins, it's not worth the trip.

If you fight your way through it's a cool adventure up to the castle. However, nothing is guaranteed and you should do so at your own risk. But you have a quiet spot with history :)
