  • The guide was rushed through and in german but a definite visit. Depictions of asia on the ceilings was very intresting but my obvious favourite was the grotto room. You could smell the sea in the room.
  • Very well maintained. Beautiful inside. Lots of paintings. Take a good look in the cool room with seashells.
