Having said that-if like me you are over 60 and not really agile-forget the lantern that offer you at the entrance and instead wear good sneakers and bring a flashlight or cellphone to face the very narrow spiral staircases in the dark of the Castle (First council), Second Council: Prepare yourselves on the order of the sword holders (order similar to that of the Templars); There is a lot of talk about it in the museum but we do not understand the historical evolution in the exposed panels. Thirdly: I point out that in the courtyard of the castle there is a vegetable garden with plants with seeds (medieval? The signs say yes) recovered among the ruins. Good visit!
Great place to visit, especially in the evening during winter when it is starting to get dark. Giving out lanterns is a great feature, and going to the very top of the towers gives a great view of cesis.
Nice place to walk around. It located in the center of Cesis, and near this there are beautiful park with small lake
