I was stunned at how beautiful this castle was. I’ve seen many but this was just really spectacular. I’m sure in the spring the gardens are much nicer but even we visited in the winter , I still loved it. Would recommend to all.

The Castle is very beautiful . The parks around the Castle are well maintained. As the Castle is surrounded by water, it offers wonderful views all around. The entrance fees is a bit steep. €16 for the Castle and €5 just for the gardens.
