EUROPE UP CLOSE
The most fascinating room in the castle, however, is the Knights Room, with its collection of weaponry from the 15th-19th century. Walking past the displays one can trace their development from crude arms to more sophisticated weapons.

WORLD TRAVELS
It is a great attraction to enjoy with kids because they particularly love exploring the castle; with the lake and forest providing its setting it really does appear to be straight out of a fairytale or a medieval romance.
