Description

The castle, which originally was used as a defence stronghold, was founded in the end of the 1300’s. The stronghold was then rebuilt at different times until the 1600’s when it had become a castle with mainly an administrative function. At the end of the 1600’s the castle was left to dilapidate. The castle has now been restored and is open for visitors.
