Great visit and nice scenario, especially if you opt not to take the elevator (and you can, naturally)

26 euros to get to the top via Elevator. Very excellent fairy tale castle with lots of gatehouses and battlements. A beautiful flower garden and a restaurant, but not a lot to do once you get there. There was a guide you could download on your phone but I didn't have phone signal at the castle. Guest wifi would be a nice cost effective touch. This castle is still family owned and that is pretty cool the slightly higher entry fee doubtless helps to make up for the lack of public funding.
Look very good from outside! Like a fairytale. But inside nothing special. View from top also so so! Cost is 15 eur. I think that is too much for this castle.
