This is a beautifully restored castle that is worth a visit for the building itself. Unfortunately, the content of the museum is lacking. Most of the exhibition is copies of originals that are elsewhere so you're left feeling a little cheated.

In this castle I was little bored. Exposition was little poor. I was scared of steep stairs.:D Ticket is not value of his price. It's enough for me to look parts without ticket.

This is a great place to visit. Keep in mind that the best time to visit is undoubtedly summer, because of open space and wind. Nevertheless I highly recommend to come there.

The castle is well organised and well restored. Bear in mind that the restoration is recent and that the contents are from elsewhere . If interested in the recent history (WW2) do not miss climbing the first tower of the tour to see the exhibits...More
