  • Spectacular medium-sized park in French regular style. Tulips, peacocks sing their songs. The air of the foothills, delicious. Neat, highly proportional Schloss. Somehow on the list of UNESCO, apparently because of its interiors, but the entrance to the Schloss itself for 13 EUR straining-enough and the kind of courtyard. It is said that the number of all the windows of the palace equals the number of days in the year. Only 4 stops by tram № 1 from the station.

  • Very nice residence already from the outside, inside even more. You only visit with a guided tour of one hour, guide MTO prepared and nice, the rooms of the complex are really beautiful not for nothing is declared patrimony of UNESCO! In the garden you can see peacocks spinning free and perfect flowerbeds
