  • Amazing piece of history. The design of the self-guided tour is pretty great. Only note, not a kid friendly design, more a museum than a castle tour. Save money with kids and just enjoy the exterior gardens.
  • Very nice place, a bit high price.. And the best tip I can give.. It's better to visit in October.. In July it's very hot!
