    A verry nice castle. Because of some movies that were made here, the castle has had a serious face lift. At some location a bit over done renovations, probably to make it look good for the movie. The tour takes you through many room and courtyard. The view from the palissade and balconies is awesome. What beautiful landscape surrounds this imposing castle.

    Beautiful castle to visit. Easy access with the parking lots. Not so many things to do for children even if they enjoyed it

  • "Overwhelmed with disappointment"

    1 / 5 Reviews posted by Fergus H on 24/10/2019

    If you are looking for family castle fun this is not the place! There was no actual activities to do just disturbing modern art. No castle history etc. and lots of empty rooms! No place for kids...
