The castle is full of wax statues, mainly of the "chat botté". The visit is done by a guide who guides a full group and explains the story of the house. The main piece of the visit is the Teschen Table which is a really luxury table.

The Garden is full of wax statues. Those statues will awaken the child inside you, the old story that granny was telling to you. This is one of the best places to go with the young children. You can also enjoy the French garden to picnic. Or you can get lost in the Alice in Wonderland labyrinth.
