At the information board of tourist club Kostel it turns sharply left, and a paved path brings us to few more houses of the settlement Kostel, and in before them we continue left towards the castle. The path ahead on the left side bypasses the church of Holy Three Kings in Kostel, and behind the church follows some ascending on the stairs, and with increasingly beautiful views we get to the castle Kostel. We continue through the entrance of the castle to the spot, where used to be a lookout tower, from where a beautiful view opens up.
