  • The castle is tiny (relatively speaking for a castle) but absolutely stunning. Every room is completely unique in a different style. Every surface is covered with paintings, carpets and wood decorations. The extravagance is almost overwhelming. Definitely worth a visit
  • Definitely worth a visit. The throne room is luxurious. Pay attention to the thrones, delicate tapestries. Also not to miss: the green glass room (Venetian glass collection) and the treasury ( basement ). Keep the ticket carefully, as you will need it for the treasury. Beautifully preserved castle rooms. Some smaller side-rooms are protected with glass - which is great to keep them in good condition, also make them available to the visitors
