The extra cost of the main palace rooms is worth every Euro. The view is remarkable from the top floor facing the lake. Sound of music scene. Minimal staff visible. You feel like you own the place. Feel free to explore. There are many hidden rooms and conversation (this is a place used for diplomacy and leadership seminars) nooks. While you discover those spots, imagine for amoment some of the possible world impacting decisions made in those old wodden chairs. The breakfast room is phenomenal with 30+ foot ceiling adorned with 200+ year old paintings which tell so many stories. Read up on the history before you go or read about it in their broucher. Take a walk aroudn the lake for a view of the palace and the fortress in the backdrop. Walk the stairs as often as you can, they're a museum in themselves. See if you can find the ping pong room. Gievn the nature of the venue, I'm sure the likes of Winston Churchill, Sandra Day O'Conner, and Nelson Mandela have spent a few hours matching their paddle skills against one another there.
