Today the castle serves as the king's residence, as a place of state representation, the administration of the monarchy and also as the country's most elegant guest house.
The castle appears huge with its three wings, the front is 100.80 meters long and 24.10 meters wide. The two side wings are 40.70 meters long and 14.30 meters wide, and the three wings together house 173 rooms. It is probably not as big as it seems, because the palace is one of the smaller residences in Europe.
