We had only an hour to see this ancient fortress, much less time than it deserved. It would have been nice to lunch at the restaurant there. Kids ages 18-5 ran around the grounds and had a good time.

At the foot of the castle is a small town where the oldtown ahs kept its charm. Quaint shoppes and lovely eateries line the cobbled street. Not as touristy as other German town but quite pleasant enough.
