  • Really pretty palace and the views are amazing. Tour was kind of short and you are not allowed to take photos inside the palace, but still great to hear some history about this place. The courtyard of the palace was the best.
  • Best castle in the area. Looks like it came straight out of a fairytale book. The castle is located spectacularly on the edge of a cliff. You can take a ticket for the inner surroundings which is already great. The building itself can only be visited via a guided tour, which is very nice! Parking near the castle is easy but not free.
