  • It looks small and not visible. But, it is worth to go inside. It is interesting to consider the details of decoration and present who lived in this castle. As women expect their husbands to hunting, sitting beside a window beading. What kind of meals and that the guests were within these walls.

  • Little castle but with rooms, entirely lined with wood and furnished, warm and welcoming from the impact. Admission is inexpensive and well worth the visit. Convenient underground parking at 100 meters.

  • The castle is definitely something different than usual, showing a more "rustic" side of royalty. Without Guide, short textual descriptions give a little support, but probably do not do justice to the plethora of anecdotes regarding this residence that exudes history from every wall.
