  • Beautiful walk that leads up to the caves and lovely garden! We did not visit the inside of the Castle but the entry "Cave and garden" gives also access to the games room former is which is nice for children after a good ride.

  • Great discovery, the castle is open the weekend of January (except Sunday mornings). The guided tour (+ free visit of the area: caves, gardens, Museum prehistory) is priced at € 12 adult, it is interesting but I still kinda mitigated by information... In addition, we have didn't even a thank you for the tips (€4) left in the "hat" of the guide, too bad... Without taking for major sponsors, a thank you is not wrong, in any case being in the business let me thank all of my visitors that they add a (very) small + or not. I don't know either if the home was sympathetic or ironic at the box office... In any case everything is splendid and I highly recommend the visit... Plan well 4 hours time if you want to see everything!

  • Pretty Castle well preserved parts, excellent guide and beautiful garden has human size, mounted on stilts. It is a bit expensive for a family. The caves are a little far but the ride is nice.

  • A beautiful setting, the history of the castle is available in a guided tour as well as in an exhibition very well presented. The gardens are a model of respect for nature that married well with the surrounding constructions. It rests, it takes its time and it made a detour of several centuries in back for a moment. Do not plan a detour, better...
