  • I could not visit the castle's interior (I think it is private). But the building, the garden and the view from all around justify the visit. Don't miss it if you happen to be around.  more »
  • Impressive views of the lake and village...a day visit worth taking if you go to this area. There’s plenty around to see as well...  more »
  • Nice castle, the museum is also really nice and the lady there is so friendly! On the other hand a waitress from the restaurant was extremely rude, she just slammed the door from the restaurant on our faces even though there was nobody inside. If the restaurant was closed I would appreciated being told so, not just get the door closed at my nose. Rude Restaurant staff, really impressive place tho.
  • Beautiful and Historical castle, the view of the lake is wonderful also they offer wedding parties there.
