THEME TOUR 1 IN THE OUTDOOR AREAS

From the castle to the palace, from the palace to the fortress: The 60-minute tour of the outdoor areas leads through the courtyards and (if the group can make the journey through the tunnel/over the outside staircase) to the Bear’s Bastion and the High Bastion. There is so much to learn about the buildings, fountains and bulwarks. At the heart of it all is the exterior of the castle grounds, whose building history dates back to the 11th/12th century.
