Thank you fellow Trippers for recommending a stop off in this delightful place. It felt as if we were in Disneyland or Epcot with Rapunzel's castle in the centre. Fairly quiet when we were there which gave us time to wander up & down the...More

The Castle was easy to get to. Parking areas are available, but you must walk a little while. The rooms have information placards describing the exhibits. The rose gardens were my favorite....amazing fragrant.
