The castle was basically "closed" for upgrades except for one of the areas on the backside. If the renovation follows the work they have completed in this one area, it will be fantastic.

They are open to public for guided tours on weekends only. On weekdays, they have a small museum at a corner of the castle. It is just a 10-15 minutes tour. I was inside the museum for less than 10 minutes as I was all alone... More
