Interesting building with a lot of history. Guide in paper available (included in ticket price) in at least 4-5 different languages. The intended route is not always very clear, sometimes you find afterwards, you'd taken the wrong direction: there are numbers for several parts, but not every part/room is numbered, and no direction to the next number is given.

Despite arriving behind a coach load of tourists, we enjoyed meandering around the ruins. The guide notes in English gave a briefly described route and some explanations but could have been more comprehensive. Not so the family history sheet which ran to two full pages! The views of the surrounding countryside were wonderful. We didn't visit the renaissance house. It... More

There is the ancient castle - a ruin- and the renaissance one which you can only go around on a conducted tour. The day we went it was in french and german, we managed to follow the french one and it was very interesting. The ruins would be great for children to explore.

We took our daughter to visit the castle on a Sunday afternoon and had a great time. The medieval castle is mostly outdoors so take that into consideration when planning your visit. There was lots to explore and nothing that a two year old could break so we had fun climbing up and down over the ruins pretending to dance... More
