As a side note, you can do this in the morning as well.  You just have
to get up more than an hour before sunrise.

As to doing this without a meter, I would set a basic dusk 16 exposure
on print film (with 100 speed film say 1/8 at F4) and shoot a frame
every minute as the light fades in the sky.  Obviously, if it is dawn
then as the sky brightens.  Once the sun breaks the horizon then you are
back to sunny 16.

Then of course, with a completely black sky you should be able to drop
any sky you want over the castle...

As a tourist holiday? Well if you could make it work without "she who
be obeyed" not being annoyed, ;-)  I'd be there early the next evening
because it has the potential for a beautiful photograph.

And if I were doing colour I'd bracket at wrong or right time. Lots of
