Beautiful castle and very nicely kept. The staff is very friendly, helpful and attentive. The exhibition is very interesting and kids can touch almost anything which makes it even fun to come there with young children. There aren't many stairs, so it's an easier castle to get around.
The castle have several buildings, all accesible and well documented. There are pictures, comments, authentic equipment, audio guide and more. There is a small coffee shop with some desserts, but no place to have a meal. But it's close to the town with some nice places to eat. Also, there is a great boat trip nearby. So a really good place for trip.
