  • Very nice destination to explore. Visit not only the palace, but also take a walk around the island.
  • Take a boat and visit this splendid caprice of a mad (?) king!
  • Very good from outside... Amazing from inside. Do take the information tour ! It is worth it ! Photography not allowed inside...
  • Take a boat out to the castle on the island. The tour is good (no photos allowed) and the grounds are nice to walk around.
  • Nice castle even if it's not done. The ticket includes a guided tour, so it's worth the money. The courtyard is very big, has very interesting fountains and a great view of the lake.
