  • Just as beautiful as it looks in photos, really nice castle to walk around, and a nice place to have a drink opposite. Its a must to arrive by boat and take a stroll in the gardens.

  • Visitors have access to the whole castle. The wonderful historical interpretations are in German, French and English. It is worth the trip.

  • Great location. I didn't enter the castle but walked around the garden which is great. Fantastic view of mountains.
