  • Very nice castle, where Anne marled Charles. The fee guided tour is well worth it. Also a booklet with some enigma activities for kids.

  • Good site to see. Cool that you can walk the "ramparts" where the arrow loops (Slits) are. Ruin behind castle is neat. You can climb stairs to the upper windows. And there is a big tree house you can climb into as well. Costs 10 Euro as of Jan. 2022
  • Amazing chateau in the middle of town, fantastic displays in each room and beautiful grounds to wander in. Well worth €11 and for us, great that dogs were allowed inside as well as outside.
