  • Nice castle, the museum is also really nice and the lady there is so friendly! On the other hand a waitress from the restaurant was extremely rude, she just slammed the door from the restaurant on our faces even though there was nobody inside. If the restaurant was closed I would appreciated being told so, not just get the door closed at my nose. Rude Restaurant staff, really impressive place tho.
  • Beautiful and Historical castle, the view of the lake is wonderful also they offer wedding parties there.
