  • 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!
  • Beautiful place for pictures. Very scenic. The castle itself is very interesting. Would love to come back and explore more
  • 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.
