Castle Good Knight

A fence has been installed surrounding the property. You cannot view the castle unless you enter the museum or get a glimpse through open gates. Did look interesting, but was closed.

Castle Good Knight

It was closed for the season when we passed it, but it is quite the castle compound. We peeked through the gate and found a flyer. If you are into the Lord of the Rings, they do adventures there! Along with "Ancient healing arts." Astounding looking place!
