Yes, quite the climb up but the views were great (see my pics from there) and in good weather the restaurant is a great idea (check that they are open before going).
Lunch at the castle up the hill sounds very nice. How steep is the climb? My sister who is joining me may not be able to make it if it is too high a climb
At 592 meters it is about 190 meters up from the river/town level at 401 meters:

Thank you slowpoke. We will see how we go when we are there. Hopefully I will be able to provide a trip report on my return as a "thank you" to the awesome people who run this forum and the travellers who respond on this forum.
Trip reports are always greatly appreciated!
We found some nice places to eat along the river bank too. My husband made his way up to the castle afterwards on his own as I knew I wouldn't be able to manage it. I found a nice bench to sit on and people watch and bird watch! Including a couple of amorous grebes and a large clutch of baby ducks with their mum!
Thank you Maggie for that alternate suggestion. Sounds good.
