  • I visited here about 30 years ago and I am glad I did. There are so many castles to see in Germany, etc. But each has it's own unique characteristics. I visited five while over there. Don't miss.....  more »
  • Amazing place, so beautifully done & kept, well maintained. One negative thing is u can't take pics! Which is such a waste for such a beautiful place
  • Beautiful palace that is almost an exact replica of Versailles, other than of course the fact that it was never finished. The palace is beautiful, and the rates to get in were very fair. The one thing that was very annoying is the fact that you cant take pictures inside the palace. Sightseeing is very fun, however it is much better when you can take pictures to share with others. Other than that though it is a beautiful destination and you will not regret going.
