That it was the retreat residence for Queen Victoria and her husband Albert only boosts the romantic value of the castle. Carl Friedrich Schinkel really let off steam here. Great, even with kids.
Amazing restoration. Great tour guide.
It is worth going for the architecture and interior, but considering the wealth of other castles/palaces in the region, I'd prefer other locations over this. Sadly, picture taking isn't allowed inside (no idea why). If you visit in the winter months, bring a warm jacket or better keep your winter coat on. Our guide was very knowledgable, but sadly told us more about Queen Victoria and her family than about the Schloss itself (though, to be fair, the 2 are directly linked). Signage around the castle is appaling, and I can't see any excuse for that.
