Beautiful place and a great art collection. The arms collection is probably one of the largest in the world.
It is a very okay place to spend your day if you dont have anything else on your schedule. Went here with my girlfriend and a friend of hers and i was more busy entertaining them and myself..hehe. A beautiful place, but anything with art doesnt really draw my attention. Would recommend this place to those who are interested though!

However, the landscaping, whatever your take on it, is... More
Even if you are not a big history buff, you will become one here. The blend of history and beauty of art work so well together, you feel you are having a true experience, not a mundane visit. The architecture is gorgeous! And in the "armory", I love the armor for the horses...AND the dog! I will never tire of... More
