Small museum in reconstructed castle but well worth the visit -- the Rittersaal on the top floor is breathtakingly beautiful and the museum of medieval art on the ground floor is interesting (the explanations in German of the exhibits could be slightly better lit, though)....More

Most of the castles I've been to are in a remote place up a hill or mountain but this one is bang in the city centre. The medieval (rebuilt) architecture is amazing. Was on a post-conference walking tour so I didn't have time to go...More
