Classic castle built for royalty in the seventeen hundreds, once with acres of French-style gardens, a 'mini-Versailles', and now transformed into an English-style park with lake and modern statues. The castle itself can be visited, and is a beautiful setting for weddings and any special occasions. It has its own outdoor green theatre, besides the unique 'Brother and Sister' squares... More

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.

Large complex of historic buildings, channels and nice tidy houses. The principal piece is surrounded by a round channel inhabited by waterbirds. Nothing outstanding, yet a very pleasant place to visit.

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.

The tour is very informative, and explains a lot about the art collections, and the origin of the word "Cabinet".

It's nice to walk around the castle self as it's in the middle of the park. The Castle is not so big. There is always activity during the year. Free parking near the castle. We couldn't go inside the castle because there was a wedding ceremony going on so we went to have to have a cup warm drink in... More
