A nice stop if you're passing by. We did have to pay for the parking lot, not sure if that's usual or just some local kids trying to make an extra buck during their holiday. From the parking lot it's a litte hike uphill to the actual castle. Didn't visit the castle itself but from the outside you can already see most of the ruin.

Original wall of the central tower; exhibitions and makets on each floors; tomb of the former landlord Kinizsi P.; magnificent landscape.

From outside it looks small but you can spend easily more than an hour inside

Amazing view from the top of the tower. They will start a major refurbishment soon, so go and see while you can!

Seeing a historical Castle is always amazing me. The surroundings and the view is very nice. Small parking area; however, we arrived just before the closing (one hour before 5 pm) there were no problem to find a place to park. In addition received 10% discount. It is a must to see.

Duino Castle

Duino Castle was built by the Wallsee family in 1389 on the cliffs overlooking the Gulf of Trieste. It replaced an older castle from the 11th century. Over time, the Wallsee family disappeared and the castle, after having been used as a prison, became the residence of the Luogar and Hofer.

At the end of the 19th century it became the property of Prince Alexander von Thurn und Taxis from the Czech branch of the House of Thurn and Taxis. It remains with the family to this day with his great-grandson Prince Carlo Alessandro della Torre e Tasso, Duke of Castel Duino the current owner. The castle has been opened to the public as a museum and park.
