The Burgruine Aggstein area is really great style, desolate beauty, great architecture, and the creeper is beautiful, it is worth visiting! Overall, it is recommended from the back mountain, the scenery is better~
In the village of Spitz resting on the Danube we saw Burgruine Aggstein Up a steep hill but worth the climb Amazing views towards the river
Nice view of Danube river and great access to the most parts of castle. Try to reach the rock behind the castle for best views. Entrance fee 6,90 EUR.
The small castle is built on a steep hill on the banks of the Danube and would have provided control of the river traffic. It is visible from the river and you can also go inside the castle if you are...
I visited Aggstein in 1987 and saw remains of a fire. My great-grandmother died in that fire. Sadly in 2006 the area with the fire was demolished. I felt like I lost part of my family history
Another great castle along the Danube. Check the opening times before you go. You can also climb up the mountain on feet (it takes about an hour!)
