  • You have to walk a decent amount from parking to the castle, once you get to the castle they tell you to go around and grab a ticket. You grab a ticket and you wait 45 minutes. Once the 45 minutes is over you get a decent tour if the castle. The entire process takes about 2 hours. I recommend the castle across the lake more.
  • The tour guides know their trade, fun stories, some history. Quick tour, cheap, nice view of the lake. Steep steps - watch out for kids. It's all right to bring a 3 year old here but you'll have to leave the stroller in a designated area
  • Make sure you buy the ticket before hand. On holidays, there could be 4 hours of waiting. During the waiting time, you could take the ferry ride and visit another castle. The castle is good and very picturesque. Surrounded by dam and beautiful forest, it gives very scenic environement. Lot of options for cafe and restaurants. Just minus marks for the waiting time and full parking.
  • Great area to have a cup of coffee aswell.
  • Nice place with beautiful views from 🗼
