The castle from the outside looks real nice. But the tour inside was a letdown. There is literally nothing to see besides printed out pictures.

We had a very good walk along the river, the path was so beautiful, my girls had fun with the butterflies and dragonflies. The château was beautiful and full of history. The château has an audioguide, fun to listen while visiting inside the château.

I've seen the chateau only from the outside. It was worthing to drive! Chateau is small and very beautiful, it looks like someone put a model on the rock and water.

It was an advice from the hotel manager. A little castle placed on a rox´ck in the middle of the water. Really nice!
