  • Christmas markets in december held in front of the beautiful castle. The building is lit up with lights that vary in different colors. The castle is a very beautiful place and it would be nice to come back during the summer to see the garden

  • The castle gardens are of an outstanding beauty with lots of things to discover, like fountains, the mosque, mock-up ruin, statues, ... You can spend almost a full day walking and exploring it ! One of the most beautiful gardens I ever saw. Your best walking shoes are advised and also a map of the gardens that you can get at the entrance. We made our visit on a hot day and to be honest our visit was spoiled by a parc surintendant patroling on a bike who said it was not allowed to put a toe into the fresh water. There is also an interdiction not allowing to walk on the grass nor leaving the footpaths. Unwritten for us, no signs, therefore 1 star falls of.
  • A beautiful garden and castle it was the sommer castle of a German kind of king ,if you visit in winter remember that :D
  • The gardens are just mesmerizing. Must visit.
  • Lovely gardens and a perfect spot to have a gala dinner, as in my case. Cheers to the friendly guided tours available!
  • You can easily spend half a day in the park.
