Toured several of the local castles and this was my favorite. They normally don’t offer guided tours in English but the guide let me tag along. He gave me a brief explanation in English after each stop which really added to the experience.

We visited this place with our small kids. Very nice location as well as very well treated. It was only one thing which I was missing - it was impossible to pay by credit card. Anywhere. In the pub, at the entrance, nowhere. I believe...More
