Lots of things to try in the castle. E.g. A knights sword, helmet, shield etc. also a writing machine and other stuff. Kids were very exited. Very good experience, way over expectations. Kids aged, 4, 7 and 12 (boy and two girls).

A local museum based in the castle covering over 2000 years of history. Well worth a visit - especially to the the frescoed Knights' Hall.

While the frescoes are well worth viewing, also of interest are the exhibits of local culture. I found the 20th-century displays particularly notable, especially those focused on WWII and beyond.

It is true the ceiling is very impressive and it pays to visit only for that. But the museum has a huge quantity of items. articles, ethnographic tools and more which makes it a very interesting museum.
