This is one of the most famous castles on water in Germany with a picturesque park around, which we have enjoyed even on a chilly autumn day! Perfect for a day trip or a short weekend visit if you are nearby.

We didn't know about this town or this attraction until we saw the signs on the autoroute. They provided recorded guides in many languages, and the self-guided tour was informative. We sometimes lost our place in the automated guide, but that's not a problem, as...More

The castle, now a museum gives a good impression of the circumstance of life for northern nobel people. Take a trip back in time.

What a stunning Disney like castle near Flensburg. The situation on the Fiord near The village of Glucksburg is gorgeous. It is a very reasonable €8 to go into the castle and is really beautifully preserved and interesting. There is an introductory video subtitled in...More

This schloss is special in several ways. It was never destroyed or abandoned, and so has maintained a lot of its original character. Inevitable renovations and additions through the years have not destroyed its character. Critically, since the 1920s a foundation has put a lot...More

The surroundings is great, the text is very informative, everything is in English, there are many things to see and admire. The entrance hall is a bit confusing with all the doors, some of which are just exits, so maybe a bit of labelling there...More
