There is actually not *that* much left of the castle gardens. But it's still enough to spend some time there once you're in the area. First of all don't miss the rosarium - see separate tip. The other gardens are free, though.

Another small door on the left (southern) side of the Long Drive takes you to a small garden that is designed somewhat like a Japanese garden. Nice and offers good views.

An English style park is south of the castle, large lawns alternate with shade providing trees. The large pond is unfortunately separated from the park by a street nowadays. There is also a large playground for kids in the most distant part of the park.

The park along the river below the castle is also very nice. A promenade and bike trail runs through it. The views of the rock on the opposite bank of the river is stunning. A hint: There is a nice path in the shade of the trees that winds up on the northern side (from the town) to the castle from there.

Directions: Around the castle.
