Really cool to explore these castle ruins. Unfortunately there is some construction work right now, but still neat. If you go early you can have it all to yourself!
Very nice castle, pretty good preserved. You can drive to the castle. Castle itself is high and you can enjoy spectacular view. Trekking path starting from castle is also worth a trip. You can choose shorter one and spend about 1 hour, or longer one, about 2 or more hours. Trekking path goes on the ridge with many nice viewpoints.
