  • We had the opportunity to explore the castle the day before the flower festival, which proved to be a great idea-there were no big crowds and at the same time the qual compositions were already on the spot. The castle itself is beautiful, with picturesque views and gardens. Plan your day for a visit to visit the castle, the underground, the gardens, the Castle Park, the stables and the Palm House. Unfortunately we ran out of time-we have a reason to come back soon!

  • I was in front of the picnic-despite the ugly weather I stopped the queue. Council for all visitors-you do not want to stand in the kilometre queue to buy a ticket earlier over the Internet. I unfortunately did not know about it and the Weszlam to the queue of 11 it visited the castle and the underground route from 15:45. A little about the castle-visited with a nice young guide-what would not ask him-knew everything, were in our group of children it even engaged them to be well-affected and not bored. Explore the Underworld-an ineteretic and modern with the playback of movies and sounds as if from the hereafter. They impress. Generally recommend to visit the castle-you need only prepare in comfortable shoes because walking is for a few hours.

  • Lovely Castle with rich history. There are Castle tours available. Really recommend the your of the underground tunnels. The nature around is lovely and everything is very well kept. The two onsite restaurants are great offering local dishes of great quality. There are also couple of hotels just meters from the castle. Don't forget to visit a nearby botanical garden! Enjoy!
  • I had only seen the castle from a backyard and I only had time to collect some leaflets, so I took three maps in various languages. It seems interesting that each of the maps was slightly different from the other two - different fonts, shades of the same colors. I would have missed this if I only got one version and I had not spent a while comparing all tree of them. From my point of view, I do not have enough data to evaluate well my visit, so I appreciate I was able to adore the view.
