This castle is not as spectacular as others, but is still worth visit. The problem is that you have to take 2 tours, $7. each to see it. The guide, an older man, was difficult to understand, he made many sexual innuendos,made a disparaging remark...More

Worth a visit if you are in the area and have some time to spare. Personally felt it pales in comparison to the Palace of Versailles in France. Many areas not accessible unless separate tickets were bought. Tour was informative but the echos made the...More

We visited the palace during a business conference and our group had the pleasure to do the tour with an actress playing a mistress. Very authentic, fun and insight to the do's and don'ts of that period.

Enjoyable palace and grounds to visit. But if you want to see kings and queens rooms and/or collections you have to buy separate tickets or a combined ticket to see everything. The guide was good but I felt rushed and felt it was expensive if...More

The place is huge. Did a tour but did not complete the entire property. Also the English language tours are limited to 2 per carat day and should be increased.

The palace is like any other palace, although the stories are interesting. Try to go there in spring/summer because the garden is impressive and you will spend the whole day enjoying the flowers and trees. In the garden it is also the "fairytale garden" where...More

From their website, seems like there are several possible tours to take of the interior depending on which area you want to see (king's, queen's, Carl Eugen's, children area, gallery). My son will likely lose interest after one, so which should I pick for if I can do only do one?
