Fantastic castle, nice hike. The castle can be reached by a 45 min walk from where the dirt road starts after leaving the town of Mironcillo. Don't try to drive it with a "normal" car as it won't bring you good. The way is very scenic. It reminded me of California. The castle is in good shape although closed from the public. Very unfortunate but the hike still worths it. You won't meet many fellow tourists on the way. Take plenty of water if climbing in Summer.

Topography of Terror

The Topography of Terror (Topographie des Terrors) is an outdoor and indoor history museum. It is located on Niederkirchnerstrasse, formerly Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, on the site of buildings which during the Nazi regime from 1933 to 1945 were the headquarters of the Gestapo and the SS, the principal instruments of repression during the Nazi era.

The buildings that housed the Gestapo and SS headquarters were largely destroyed by Allied bombing during early 1945 and the ruins demolished after the war. The boundary between the American and Soviet zones of occupation in Berlin ran along the Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, so the street soon became a fortified boundary, and the Berlin Wall ran along the south side of the street, renamed Niederkirchnerstrasse, from 1961 to 1989. The wall here was never demolished.
