“Fun for children”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

Wasn't much impressed with the castle itself. The grounds were lovely and some cute trick fountains that the kids enjoyed, but don't think I'd recommend for adults only

“Beautiful Gardens”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

We visited the Castle in May and the temperature was very mild for Spring so there were a lot of school children sun bathing. The castle has a huge sprawling garden which was so beautiful one would want to just sit down and admire the scenery. We didn't enter the castle but we got to see people running around and trying to beat the fountains and not get wet. The fountains was the fun part.

There is a small gift shop as you enter the castle grounds .

Getting to the castle was very easy using the GPS. We didn't get lost and there was a huge parking lot at the side of the castle.

“A must see when the Christmas market is open.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

The grounds are spectacular and the Christmas market just added to the awe. The original Sound of Music gazebo is on the property. The ponds and water scultures are nice to walk around as well. Hop on/Hop off bus stop across the street.

“Prepare to get wet!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

What a great day for young and old. A surprise around every corner (and chair!). Had a great laugh and enjoyed the historical aspect as well. It was good to see they had such a great sense of humour back then.
