A pleasant place to stroll with beautiful buildings. I especially liked the clock with bells made of Meissen porcelain.

We were more impressed and interested in the grounds and layout of the gardens than anything inside the buildings.

Beuatiful baroque architecture where you can find several museums : porcelain collection, a collection measuring instruments for time and distance that where used in the 17th century... Not very interactive, mostly static. So not very interesting for kids...

Although it's still being renovated well worth a visit It's free to walk in the grounds and along the wall promenade. Could be described as an enclosed garden but it's much grander than that.
