Bring kids to listen to the witch stories during weekends. They love it. After that you can eat and rest a little bit upstairs. You can easily arrive with the tourism bus.

Great place to go with children. The hansel and gretel trail is pretty nice. Come with confirtable clothes and hat. Three times a day they tell stories in the trail.

Nothing interesting there, it's a cute place in a upscale neighborhood but not worth your time. It's just a path in the woods.
