It could have been a smaller version of Neuschwanstein Castle, I really liked what I saw!I don't know about you, but when I see a very old Schloss like this, it always makes me wonder how they managed to...

    Tour the Castle

    by JetlagCity Written Apr 29, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Take a guided tour to see the inside of the castle. It's not extensive, but there's a small room of armor, furnished living quarters, and partial stained/painted glass windows. The castle is above the little town of Honau, and the tour costs about 5 Euros.

    In the off-season when we visited, they only offered tours in German, but we had the added benefit of our local friend The Wolfman, who was kind enough to give us a quick translation in English after the tour guide was done talking about each room.
