  • The castle is beautiful however there is a lack of information and the price is a little high compared to the visit.

  • I was very impressed by this castle! The owner, who also lives in 1941, piece of this castle, popped a chat. She is rightly proud of it. Very nice with an eye for detail. You get a glimpse into the family history. If there are extra fun dress up clothes for children and adults. Friendly staff that you would like to answer your questions in the libraries (with up to 21000 books, some from 1600)
