No one here is helpful-from the car park to info station. Very long wait for everything, disappointing view inside. If you have one day for this please prepare to spend all of it on being angry and offended.

Although a nice castle to look at from the outside it was so gaudy on the inside!! The madman that built it never stayed in it. Tour guide wasn't very enthusiastic about interesting facts and was over quite quickly. Getting to the bridge was also...More

We traveled here expressly to visit this incredible castle - and it certainly is that! Both the castle and its setting are stunning. But I felt that, being more 'recently' built, it lacked a bit of the history and charm of older castles (I preferred...More

It's advisable to take the bus/horse cart up to the castle as the climb is steep and road not so good. There are various levels inside the castle so stroller will not work.

Yes it's possible but ONLY if you prebook a tour time. And give yourself time to park and get up to the castle too!
