    Definitely worth seeing is the museum in the castle, but this is currently winter break and is only open again after 18 March. It contains historically furnished rooms from all eras, a chapel with very interesting late medieval altars and a kind depot exhibition. Furniture, crockery, glasses, pictures were arranged together in a large room like in a museum depot. In this way one learns from his own point of view in a large showcase the difference between a Bohemian glass from the Baroque period and his neobaroque copy from the Wilhelminian era. At the end you should still climb the keep, from there you have a wide view of the surrounding area
