Visitors on a weekend break will be disappointed to find this attraction closed on a Monday . We returned on Tuesday and enjoyed the art gallery which takes up much of the castle .The building overlooks the city and can be seen from all around - I was expecting something more historic

Commanding view of the city, the grounds were well maintained. The only open part is an art museum, which we found somewhat lacking as far as art. Also quite the climb to get to the museum area; felt like we had missed a turn of something.

The castle, which doesn't even look like a castle is big and red, that's all that will strike you but it has no other value or attributes. It is a long building with no character . It stands tall on the hill, you can see it from everywhere but i guess only curiosity brings you closer. Nothing spectacular. The place... More

The castle exterior is nice and gives you a commanding view of the city. The interior is an art gallery but gives you know feel of the castle. I liked the art but missed learning about the castle.

Great view of town, palace entrance limited to art museum which is limited in it's display but gives an idea of what the palace was like.

Walking from the station we got our first glimpse of this magnificent edifice, its coloured hue beautifully set against the deep blue summer sky. Strolling along the minor hillock it was great to progressively see its vastness. On reaching the summit the sheer extent of its grand facade was evident. Wonderful panoramas are to be seen, both on the way... More

It was lovely for me as I had never been in snow before. You can't go into the castle. We went the family who are locals and they told us about its history with out them I don't think it would have been a very short visit.

Impressive garden, with a beautiful view of the surroundings. Castle is placed high, which gives view over the area. Castle contains a cafe

The castle itself is very large and very beautiful. Situated on top of a hill, the surrounding area offers lovely views in all directions. The adjoined museums are interesting to visit, but could do with a little bit more development. Still thoroughly worth a visit, however, especially considering its proximity to the botanical gardens!
