The gardens are terrific. Very beautiful and pleasant to walk. Besides the 'regular ducks and swans (there are also Mandarin ducks), there are many raccoons in the park. Important to know that the park is also accessible for handicapped (at least a significant part of it). You drive to the park, drive pass the parkings, pass the hotel and then, on your left, you have 2-3 handicapped parking places on a packed gravel path, which is closed to cars by a chain. from there you can have a long stroll in the park, reach the castle, see the a beautiful lake and enjoy. With some help with the slopes, you can also enjoy the lake below the palace and maybe even climb a bit to higher grounds (although it will be difficult there).
