I have been here twice and you just have to experience the palace and the gardens (especially the gardens). It has a great story, sits in the middle of a beautiful lake and is a charming palace.
We visited this amazing palace for 3-4 hours .the palace himself is beautiful with great royal collections .after that we got out to the garden that was outstanding. F.I.Y in the palace they don't allow to take pictures. see pictures on : https://www.flickr.com/photos/82458480@N05/sets/72157630636886492/
