Red Castle 1899 information
This Victorian-style building is an architectural landmark in Tamsui, and was built between 1895 and 1899. Beautifully restored and reborn as a swank eatery, Red Castle serves both Western and Chinese dishes. To find the place, walk along Zhongzheng Rd to Alley 14 and then head up the 106 narrow granite steps.
The scrappy new building in front means the river view is blocked from all but the top floor.
