Theses beautiful gardens are magical to the eyes, they are well taken care off and maintained. We paid. Small amount of money to enjoy the music and light show that started at 9 on the 24 of August. The trees are very old and huge

These lovely gardens were the perfect place to dress up and take some beautiful photos. There are some very unique plants and flowers to enjoy. The food inside is a bit pricey - about 30€/plate, so I recommend a good beer and brat from the...More

The renovated castle, the garden and the sculptures and especially the artwork of Niki de Saint Phalle are highly recommended.

There is a Parking Lot close to the entrance. I don't know the exact fees but it should be around 1-2€ an hour.
