A fairy tale-like castle with a lot of wooden sculptures that are almost telling stories. There's a spot inside where you can "fill" yourself with positive energy. Lovely view from the terrace. You can see a medieval blacksmith workshop. I didn't expect to see medieval...More

People were nice and there are some nice store walls, but the place doesn't look like a castle, you can't tell that it has sunk (it has due to undermining) and it looks new.

I guess this castle, with the modernized reconstructions, is more a castle for shows then actual historic representation. I got lucky, when i went to visit, there was a medieval festival going on. A lot of buzz, a lot of stands offering local cheese and...More

A pleasant walk from the center of town over the river and through the woods (well, kind of) - it's not really a castle, but, rather, a museum in an old (restored?) building of sorts. Although unimpressive, it has a myriad of rooms with varying...More
