    Very pretty surroundings. If you like history. Low cost to get in. There are guided tours if you feel like learning more about the castle and the owners.

    This is like a little treasure from the city. I recently gotten a new camera and was perfect in taking pictures!. I also notice you can have special events pictures (aka wedding) because of the spectacular views. 10/10 will go again!

    I loved this place! This was my second time going, and both experiences were excellent. Very interesting, and the tour guides were great! Can't wait to come back next year.

    Great small eclectic "castle". The tour takes you on a journey through time and gives a glimpse of a brilliant mind.
