You can order a tour guide. When visiting the castle should be taken into account that there will be a lot of descents and ascents, a lot of moving, shoes should be comfortable. In the castle there is a knight's hall, children can try on armor, often in the castle arrange a knighthood and other thematic programs. There is a gift shop and a cafe on site. I recommend you to visit.
It was a very nice visit of a beautiful castle. We have been there for around 2 hours and had a great tour through the rooms inside the castle. Everything is well prepared and recalls some kind of medieval flair. It is worth a visit
The displays are amazing. So many things to see about the 800 year history, including 100 year old displays. Well priced at 12 euros per adult; you could stay for hours.
