The castle has nice rooms to visit and has regular exhibits or special arrangements, f.e. Mothersday or Easter. It has a great lunchroom and a nice park around it.

to be honest we just cycled past , had a look around the grounds. Better to include on an afternoons cycle tour than plan to visit for the day. Could be boring for young children.
