  • Great spot for a morning or afternoon visit and walk around the amazing grounds. One heads up for English speaking visitors - I am still not sure how to arrange an English language your in advance, but if you show up on the weekend one can be arranged, but it's quite pricey for them to bring in a guide same day.

  • The Castle and the lake around it form a wonderful ensemble. Inside only the chaple and two rooms are really interesting. The other rooms are used by a university.
