  • Simply love the art happenings here - not only annual forging exhibition Hefaiston, but the exhibitions that take part here. I used to stop here on my dog-walkings just to admire the view. A lovely place for getting married - a friend of mine has splendid photos from here marriage here.
  • Excellent attraction off the beaten path. What an amazing castle a what a huge amount of work that was done largely by volunteers. Highly recommend it.
  • Nice place, there is timetable with guide. There are historical events
  • Wonderful castle with nice views. In autumn, thanks to its surrounding woods, it's full of colours. Smiths from around the world have here their symposium once a year.
  • Very big and impressive structure with beatiful surrounding
