Very pretty from the distance across the lake. Best for photos on a sunny day. The guides, while good, don't want to talk about the role of the art in the German nationalist revival of the 19th century.

We had a great tour guide that actually used to live.in the castle as a child when her father was a professor. The rooms are beautiful and so are the grounds outside. The town itself is very friendly and had great food.

This beautiful fairy tale castle is set amidst a small lake. Its now undergoing some renovation work on the outside. there is a well maintained garden just behind the castle which can give you some good photo moments.

Nice castle, went there with an hour left and where able to see the whole castle. Would've been more convenient if we'd be there an hour earlier but it was manageable. Great castle!

It's a very nice castle. Quite easy to reach by foot, bus or bike. The garden around the castle is free and really nice. Inside the castle you can go on your own or take a tour. Every room in the castle is really different. If you have a lot time, go visit the park which is in the south... More

There's a museum inside (not free of charge, of course...) for whoever's interested, but for those who are not (as some in our party weren't), you can walk around the grounds. The grounds themselves are very nice and well taken care of, and the view of the castle from all around is quite impressive. It's on the edge of a... More

I love castles it was relatively easy to take the train from the cruise terminal and walk to the castle and enjoy the city before going back to the terminal. It was a long day but it's a great alternative to not going to Berlin!

I don't recommend taking the tour inside the castle, but a walk around the castle especially in the summer is refreshing. I love the garden behind the castle overlooking the lake.
