4. Entrance and Outer Bailey

At the entrance to the upper courtyard you will find the outer bailey. To the west of the main portal you can still see the remains of the late medieval gate. These also lead to the ramp-like gateway, which leads to the entrance to the stronghold. The outer bailey continues on the north side and has a small flanking tower to defend the main entrance. The tower is now accessible via the new viewing platform at the keep.
