Beautiful private Christmas Market with a variety of booths showcasing handmade gifts. Opportunities to sit inside to enjoy a hot Gluwein or Espresso. Children loved the Camels and the music.

This is a very interesting palace with a lot to see with a guided tour. The cloisters that the palace was constructed above are accessible and really worth a visit.
