“A palace to rival Versailles”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

Europe is full of beautiful, historic castles and palaces but this one of the best. Easy to visit on ones own with self guided audio commentary available. The palace is still a working facility. The armory museum within the lower palace was Great ! with very well done displays. The nearby Cathedral had an interesting display of religious regalia to rival the Vatican on a smaller scale. Thoroughly enjoyed this afternoon.

“Don't Miss It”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

Simply stunning and the self audio guide was very interesting. Whatever you do don't miss visiting the Royal Armoury, it's unbelievable what they have on display

“Great views from the top”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

A bit of a pain that the ticket office for the tower was outside the building and a little hidden. Got to the sixth floor to be told to go buy a ticket, a bit of a pain

“Pay a visit to the tower”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

The view from the terrace at the 8th floor of the tower is absolutely amazing: you can see all the town from a single place. The building itself hosts a commercial centre and administrative offices

“Fascinating wedding cake of a building”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

The building is more interesting that what it contains.....which is various exhibitions. Worth a visit to see the colourful and intricate decor both in and out.
