Inspirational ideas for that perfect holiday!

See how royal life changed over the centuries. And how staff in the kitchens and gardens made it happen. Explore the museums dedicated to art and fashion, ceramics and children. The 18th-century theater still has the original stage equipment and sets. Outdoors, the Baroque in Bloom gardens are a highlight of the enormous park.

There is always something going on. Do you fancy seeing street musicians or classical super stars? Rock legends or avant-garde electro pop? How about donning a costume for the Venetian Fair? Or celebrating all things “pumpkin” at the Pumpkin Festival?

Get into the Yuletide spirit at the Christmas market. The Baroque setting, with elegant angels overhead, is worth a thousand photos. Then there are the stalls with locally-made gifts and loads of tasty treats. It all adds up to an extra-special experience. Come and see for yourself!
