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.
