Visitors with tour guides only can view the museum - other than that.. there's no other way of getting in the musuem. The garden cafe and garden itself makes for an interesting 30 minutes of time spent..

This castle was built in several periods and it bears today also the mark of different architectural styles. You can visit some of the former state rooms. A very good collection of the past rulers.
