Wandering around in the castle's halls on their own and/or participate in guided tour (45 min). An amazing history lesson with breathtaking experiences, beautiful interiors and thrilling stories through the centuries. Fun for young and old-the whole family!
Cute castle. The surroundings are beautiful and you can have a picnic nearby. The interiors are nice, but not particularly impressive.
It was quite interesting to find 16th century Russian cannons, which were one of the best at the time, in the inner yard of the castle. These cannons are true masterpieces and were captured by Swedes. The text on them is saying: "By God's Mercy, by the order of Tzar and Great Knyaz' Ivan Vasilyevich (Ivan the Terrible) of all Russia, Andrey Chokhov made this cannon in year 7087 (1579)".
There is a lot to see. Paintings, doors, equipment, everything actually is amazing there.
Great castle to visit. Many nice paintings and authentic furniture. Nice view to the lake
A small but beautiful castle.
