Notes on visiting the castle

Dogs may generally be taken into the castle courtyard on a leash but are not permitted inside the buildings. The management reserves the right not to admit dogs to the courtyard during special events, with the exception of assistance dogs for people with disabilities.

Prams are welcome in the courtyard, but not in the exhibition rooms.

Small bags up to size A4 are permitted in the exhibition rooms. Larger bags and rucksacks must be deposited in the cloakroom of the castle bistro. Lockers are also available.
