  • A real surprise. We had been told that the park was very beautiful, but there was so much more to it. The castle by the lake was spectacular as was the museum next to it. Before even getting into the park, you had to go through the Heroes Square with its stunning bronze statues a d the near art gallery. All in all we were glad we visited. I would highly recommend it. If you have kids, there is also a boating lake and a huge wooded park.
  • A silent, calm and beautiful place to visit. The castle and the lake are magnificent. In the summertime, a good place to escape to read a book, have a picnic, etc. In the wintertime, the same lake is an ice skating rink which is so unique. Highly recommended.
  • A nice park, for a walk or some exercise or just to relax. There are also tennis and table-tennis facilities, albeit very old but usable. I loved how all the dogs are enjoying their time playing catch with their families 😍
  • Beautiful, go into the castle grounds the architecture and decorative details are beautiful. Also apparently the lake freezes over in winter and becomes a skating rink! Worth going back in winter for!
  • What a lovely place to chill out. Plenty of seating. Few shops near by to buy snacks and even make tie own lunch. Castle is dreamy and with peddle boats you can't go wrong.
