Amazing well appointed historic castle with artwork statues and tapestries on display. Recent artwork interpretations are scattered throughout. Original furniture completes each rooms decor. Allow an hour to visit more if touring gardens

I was with a local family. The castle is great. Try to get to Grote Dorst on Sunday morning if you are in the area.
