This was a visit with friends while I stayed just over the border. The art is amazing. The staff friendly and the gardens were beautiful. Plan on spending the day there and bring a sweater. It was freezing.

Lovely gardens along the river to enjoy. Good food at the Cafe. They had a special collection of silks and gold and a great permanent display of 17th Century Meissen Porcelain. I'll go back one day. The Cafe has good food also.

The gardens are lovely. There are paths, stairs, and fountains that my 3 yr old really enjoyed exploring. They also provide you with a little art kit with paper and coloring pencils for the kids to draw the gardens. We enjoyed the interactive section also.
