We’ve visited the castle for about 20 minutes. There is not very much to see. The brochure that explaines everything, the rooms etc..., is not clear. We had the feeling that they did not take the time to really recreate something of historical value. Feels...More

We toured this with a guide we booked in advance. Privat tour. Well worth the cash! Good guide with well balanced historical explanations! Everybody in the group enjoyed the tour!

We all loved it. :-) My 2 nieces got to dress up as princesses and couldn't be happier. Lots of historical artifacts to keep adults interested as well.

Drop in if you are passing. No there isn't masses to see but it has some interesting history, been carefully kept/renovated and the children get to dress up as knights and princesses!
