The cable car ride is fun. The actor who gives the tour is fun. It's certainly an unusual way to present the artifacts and history of the fortress, but it's *very* effective. If you go on your own...

Very neat fortress they have Rotating art galleries and make great use of the space with concerts in the summer and fall. Lots of historic things to see and great views there is also a restaurant and Cafe. Plus there is a play ground on the grounds near by aswell as an observation deck to enjoy the breath taking views.
Very rich history. A massive structure. Magnificent overlook of the confluence of the Moselle and the Rhine. A shirt but fun funicular crosses the river. The building themselves are not elaborate or detailed like some cathedrals etc..
Massive and beautiful fortress. Very easy to reach using the cable car. It houses exhibitions which are a treat. There is a cafe too and the fortress offers fantastic views of the rivers and the city.
Amazing place full of history. They have shows during the years. Second biggest fortress in Europe after Gibraltar it was never broken in. Amazing. We went on a very hit day and the coolness inside was welcomed. Lots of reconstructed room to show how soldiers used to live. On the top the view of Ko lens is amazing. You can get some drinks and food with a view. Make the trip up in the gondola. Highly recommended for a fantastic view of the German corner and the 2 rivers meeting.
An UNESCO historical monument that worths the visit. Great view of the city from able, very interesting archaeological museum and nice small beer gardens if you visit in the summer. I was visiting a Sunday morning where the area under the monument was quiet empty. We avoided some muggers who apparently wanted to steal our belongings this day, so heads up, avoid very tight and empty streets in hours where no one is passing by.
