It was nice. We took the tour inside but we weren't allowed to visit all the floors. The main tower was under constraction so from the outside it wasn't very pretty. The view though was fantastic.

The castle and grounds are beautiful. I wish I had read reviews prior to driving out there. The scaffolding does take away some of the inherent beauty of the castle. We did not go inside and it's worth the trip, but if you're hoping for...More

I had a desktop picture of this 19th century fantasy castle for ages so had to stop by, but unfortunately scaffolding on the main tower prevented recreating the photo. The grounds are small but have some nice buildings and fantastic views over the valley and...More

A truest wonderful castle, great tour and just a lovely experience. Nice walks and other attractions near by as well as a bar and cafe. All reasonably priced and a friendly atmosphere.

This was nice to visit, among the many we've already seen, but this one was nice, in that it's still being used by the family frequently, and you can see personal details to preserve the surroundings.. We went early, and were able to get a...More

Another overly crowded castle (and with scaffolding on part of it). We did not go in because it was way too long of a line. Driving up to it and walking around it alone will give you a good idea how impressive it is. It's...More

We arrived there very early in the day, it had snowed the night before. The castle and surrounds looked like something from a fairy tale. The tours weren't available yet so we paid just to look around. Spectacular views from the castle wall into the...More

It is truly a great place, not only for the castle but also for the views and everything. The price is too high for what you get, though... 2€ for a simple walk in the yard or 8€ for a guided tour inside. Bearing in...More

Sorry to disappoint you but really there is no boat trip in that castle... or kids playgrounds. Lots of kids, though, because of the armory and the nice yard. And yes, you can enter the castle, or at least the first two... More
Can you walk around on your own on the inside? Or is it just a 30 minute tour & they kick you out?? Are pictures forbidden? Is this enforced?

It is not possible to tour the inside of the castle on your own.If you want pictures of the castle inside, best to buy a postcard or brochure from the ticket office. You can pay €2 and walk around in the courtyard without... More
