We used bus 42 to reach the castle - finding the starting point was the biggest challenge of the day, but by asking we found an active stop. It took about 40 minutes to reach the gates of the castle and another 20 to reach the castle ticketing. Visits happen every hour, and they might become too crowded at some... 更多
The castle is tiny, the gardens are far from being spetacular, actually they are rather poor and shy, overpriced for the content, the tour had way to many people, to much pressure on the attraction, the guide was good thought and that must be welcomed nevertheless knowing what I know now I wouldnt spend my money here, there are way... 更多

I took a cab to the castle, I arrived there within 15-20 minutes and the... 更多
Really nice place to visit and see, 1 hour tour could be a bit long for very young children, as my 2 kids aged 8 and 11 struggled a little with it after 15 minutes. Superb play[ark for children nearby and we took the train back into the village which was fun.
Holy cow! My wife and I were blown away by how great this place way! Amazing gardens, beautiful lawns, and hands down the most gorgeous castle! The only way to go inside is by tour and it is absolutely worth the 12 Euro! Such a great attraction!
A small but lovely castle with an interesting history brought to life thanks to a very lovely guide Maria who just knew how to present it combining facts and good jokes. Gardens are so beautiful and this is a perfect place to take a long stroll on a nice sunny day.
Maria, our guide, enchanted us with her rich knowledge of the Castle. I didn't miss a word while she ingeniously depicted the historical remains, whether they were paintings, sculptures, furniture or simply cultural facts. She took great care of my daughter who can't climb stairs. Maria made our stay at the Castle a very pleasant and relaxing experience that we... 更多
As far as the castle itself I would give 3 stars only because it's size doesn't compare to many of the others I have seen. However, the castle was well preserved and we had the best tour and tour guide I've ever had at a castle (and I've been to many). Bronwyn was our tour guide, full of knowledge, personality... 更多
