Very nice view of the valley, but you can't get in. Sometimes there are a lot of people there, so it's worth being there early

A beautiful castle ruin, unfortunately the inner courtyard is not accessible ... nevertheless an interesting place with a beautiful view. A visit is always worthwhile!

A ruined castle. Except for a information board and four mighty high walls nothing else is theyre. Roof is also not there. The view of bissingen below hohen asperg at a distance enz river makes this elevation very beautiful.

Trencín Castle

Trenčín Castle is relatively large renovated castle, towering on a steep limestone cliff directly above the city of Trenčín. It is a dominant feature not only of Trenčín, but also of the entire Považie region. The castle is a national monument.

History of the castle cliff dates back to the Roman Empire, what is proved by the inscription on the castle cliff proclaiming the victory of Roman legion against Germans in the year 179.

Today’s castle was probably built on the hill-fort. The first proven building on the hill was the Great Moravian rotunda from the 9th century and later there was a stone residential tower, which served to protect the Kingdom of Hungary and the western border. In the late 13th century the castle became a property of Palatine Matúš Csák, who became Mr. of Váh and Tatras.

Matúš Csák of Trenčín built a tower, still known as Matthew’s, which is a dominant determinant of the whole building.
