Once you get used to low doorways, the extensive displays dating back to medieval times are interesting. Be sure to pick-up the English explanations that are on sheets beside the entrance to each room.

Very well restored castle with lots of different rooms and stairs. Fun to explore. A bit like a labyrinth but not so large that you will get lost
