  • You have to walk a decent amount from parking to the castle, once you get to the castle they tell you to go around and grab a ticket. You grab a ticket and you wait 45 minutes. Once the 45 minutes is over you get a decent tour if the castle. The entire process takes about 2 hours. I recommend the castle across the lake more.
  • The tour guides know their trade, fun stories, some history. Quick tour, cheap, nice view of the lake. Steep steps - watch out for kids. It's all right to bring a 3 year old here but you'll have to leave the stroller in a designated area
