  • Small amusement park with old rides. Overall it's pretty nice. On the other hand, the rides are not necessarily given if you plan to do a lot (in average €5 per carousel). Note that it is to be done by good weather, because most of it is not covered. Apart from that, just mix it up for a little ride, it's nice.
