  • This former Königspalst is a very large facility in which one, could spend on basic of its diversity, sure some hours, or almost a day. Unfortunately it was raining heavily at the time of our visit, which the water was already more than 5 cm high on the individual squares, and it largely ran the shoes. We had to stop so us more in the Interior, where then the tour guide about the individual surfaces or farms could tell us something.
