  • The fortress is awesome. From the top we can see the old town, old bridge with main river. Amazing view, the route to go up is also nice. There is also restaurant and souvenir shop inside. During the summer there are plenty event here, such like open air cinema.
  • Worth a look around as it includes a great view of the city. If you do decide to visit then walk up through the Umweltstation, this consists of a delightful green park that meanders up the hillside. Much cooler than the road and way more interesting. As with most places we have visited the information notices around this site are in German language only.
