“Feels like in 1500AD”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014

like the whole place, although not that old actually. We liked the nice views in the big halls. Pricing is OK, check out the gift shop

“Interesting palace but info not so clear about the history”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2014

Enjoyed our visit but found the entrance fee of 5 euros slightly dear compared to other things we had visited for a 1-3 euro a time but i know that is unfair considering the extortionate entrance fees charged in the UK. It is interesting insight into another time but not much info to explain the history of the place in terms of reconstruction.

“Well restored”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

This palace has been carefully restored and decorated - not quite true to the original period but with antique furnishings. Only a 5 euro fee and it is well worth it. we attended a dinner in the courtyard and it was magical.

“Great restoration!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

The palace is a wonderful restoration and worth seeing. It only costs 5 euro. The building itself is great and the museum is very well done. They have tried to decorate and restore it to what it would have looked like back in the day.

Also an interesting man had a falcon called Shrek and he had very interesting things to say about falcons and falconries.

The food and coffee available are vending machines so don't expect a cafe
