Visiting the 'local' castle with friends from home, it was an overall enjoyable trip. During festivals and other events, one can find concerts, food stands, and merchants. Located in the city center, one is also free to roam the 'old city' and visit numerous business...More

This was a rather easy place to find. The palace had nearly 30 rooms that we were led through on a German tour. Again while most of the group was enjoying the trivia and nuances of the tour I was stuck with an english text...More
