Castles, palaces & monasteries

They bear witness to the region's eventful past, tell stories of days gone by and invite you to an intensive exploration of the historic walls. Where once knights and noblemen stayed, today there are exciting exhibitions, well-kept park landscapes and also one or the other gastronomy with historical flair.
