There is actually a castle in this little town and now it is a museum. There is a gift shop inside also, but it's on the top floor - be prepared to hike it! Learn a little bit about the historic past of this little town

This has been a work in progress for several years but now many of the rooms are restored and the castle definitely has the feel of the granduer of the time. It is a beautiful home that deserves to be cared for and the history relived.

Great care has gone into the restoration and it is worth the visit. The gardens are lovely in the summer time.

We stumbled upon this while we were looking for the natural springs. The menu is limited but the food and service are very good. Definitely worth a visit.

You can do your own tour. Very intereting history. Building almost got destroyed. You do need to be able to walk to enjoy it. They don't mark parking well, but there is enough. Skip the hoiday tours--the decorations are not authentic--much like what you can get in Hobby Lobby. Fun gift shop.
