Went there with young children and grandfather. Nice weather, crowded. Took the bus up there is the best way to take photo from the bridge. We didn’t have time to go inside the castle. Will do next time.

If this castle looks really familiar it is because this was the model used by Disney for its Cinderella castle, but also the actual location for the Baron’s and Baroness’ castle in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang! It is a really beautiful building and so even...More

Nice modern castle that needs a long walk up the hill. Ticket is hard to get. Would advise to book them early. Need to be here to appreciate the beauty.
