  • Super beautifully landscaped castle garden. We were with the dog. He may not be in the buildings, but it was still a wonderful day.

  • The castle is already great and worth seeing, I can only recommend a guided tour. The garden is the absolute hammer and should definitely be looked at. For this visit, a total of 3/4 days must be planned. The tour was the hit and the museum staff super friendly and very well informed.
