  • Very beautiful very large and very authentic historic manor house. I was not inside, since I got here in the evening and it was closed, but I managed to completely inspect it from the outside and go into the courtyard, next to which were beautiful and well-kept flower beds with flowers, and inside there was a fountain with a statue. The estate itself looks like a house from a fantasy tale, which was hidden deep in the forest among the trees and silence. It even has its own dungeon. Not just a basement, but a dungeon, as it was written on a stand that showed the plan and legend to that plan of the estate.
  • Good for remembrance. I would mention a big 0 for the Staff of sanitary. Not speaking another language than German. I was told that we are in Germany and as such I should speak German. I was asking for change to insert in the machine to go to the toilet. IS THE WAY YOU WELCOME TOURISTS???
