Ehrenburg Castle is really amazing, we have been many times, it’s a short walk from the carpark. The guided tour is great and informative. Can highly recommend it.

This medieval castle towers over a deep valley with stunning views from the twin towers, after a healthy climb. Technically it's a ruin, but there is enough of it left to convey the feeling of an actual castle. The Sunday special entertainment certainly makes for...More

I came here for a party with a large number of young family's. Not only were the kids entertained but there was enough space to eat, drink, play and explore. A very beautiful and well kept place with helpful staff dresses to the nines. Over...More

That is correct. You have to walk up. And up, and up. Having driven by it many times, it enchanted us; the castle lit up at night is especially beautiful. We only visited Ehrenburg Castle (and the suspension bridge! Do it!) and read all the...More

The entry fees to visit the castle is really affordable (3,50 to 4,50 per person). It is a total experience. We (a group of trail riders) stayed overnight and had dinner at this Hotel. The food was excellent and the staff was very accommodating to...More

A tourist trap, a ruin and too expensive to bother exercising the imagination on. Perhaps the decaying hike up through the increasingly unkempt English garden landscaping says it all
