Beautiful palace with huge park. The palace is really beautiful and I can still remember the dining room. I haven't seen something like that in any other country where I have been. I was really feeling there like a princess.

What an amazing experience! There is so much to take in, it's overwhelming. The Palace and the grounds surrounding it tell a tale of history. The palace was bombed in WW11, but the restoration will leave you breathless.
