  • The Old Castle is truly amazing, with very little restoration. Which is why the atmosphere is outstanding. You will get an old lantern and will be welcomed by nice animation. Don't forget to visit the blacksmith.
  • Beautiful place. Not too big. Three or four hours is enough to to walk through all places without hurrying.
  • Beautiful place with many picturesque views, there are also medieval workshops with people in costumes.
  • On a Monday you can only visit the old castle ruins. Takes 30 minutes. The candle die kit you out with is a nice touch, but for the rest, there's not a lot to see.
  • Beatiful old castle with romantic park
