This is a great restored castle. We did not stay for the banquet. If you want to do the banquet, make sure you make reservations. They were booked the two days we were in this area.

Even though the food was mediocre and the wine was terrible, it’s still was a fun night.. Actors and actresses are fun to watch and the singing was great. And of course the atmosphere in the old castle made the night a fun experience.

Touring the castle should be done earlier as during the dinner the staff is utilizing the stairs and hallways. You will love the dinner.

It does cost to walk the grounds. It is well worth it. There is an old fashion village, fairy garden and lots of animals. You should plan for a few hours. There is a lovely tea room right in the center.
