This is like a German Versailles: you can have a walk around, the gardens and all the buildings are impeccably maintained. Even if you can't visit the inside of the building, this is a quiet and relaxing place to visit. Free entrance

This was a pretty good tour of the palace. Took a few hours to wander through and then see the gardens. Nice little half day trip in the city and easy to get to by train.

Spent nearly two hours being guided around the schloss which is being used as a college for financial education. The guide was full of interesting facts and details about the schloss and its history.

Nice place to take a little bit of relax outside city. The castle is surrounded by garden and and moat, it's good place for photo session.The disadvantage is that you can not visit inside.

Since it is the tax office of the North Rhine Westfalen department, only the outside can be visited. It is very nice but a shame the inside isn't accessible.

Wonderful gardens, old trees, swans, labyrinth. You can participate at a guided tour for the building or walk on your own through the garden. There is also the possibility to marry in style.
