And a nice story surrounding this building, it is nearby the restaurant so easy to access if you make a stop here either from the north or the south.

Beautiful view of the lake, but not much to see of the castle itself and some parts of it have apparently become public toilets. Still, the view is magnificent and so easy to access from the motorway.

We really enjoyed our time here. A nice little hike and amazing views of the lake and surrounding countryside. Fun to glimpse the past here. A stunning bride was getting pictures taken while we were there. It seemed a perfect backdrop for her.
