Buildings are very nicely done for just 100 years old. Good for a short visit for picture taking...esp while visiting the bath and park.

Beautiful, historical, like something from a fairy tale. A central, accessible location. There are often seasonal markets held here

Not much to say, but it is an enterence gate to the park. The park is well worth the visit, as is the Agricultural museum, even if you are not a farmer.

It must be possible... Gates are open. No guards. No tickets. No security. The tour is all free. People walking around freely. And wedding photos must be free/possible too (I assume, I guess).
