  • A castle with a fully active moat, quite remarkable. The castle is well preserved and beautiful. Truly takes you back to medieval times. Lots of hiking trails around and in a nice setting. Free parking across the street.
  • Really lovely castle. Well appointed museum. Interesting exhibits. Close to car park.
