A dream come true

Who is behind it?


The success of these measures can be well illustrated by the constantly increasing number of visitors in recent years and we are confident that the next few years will also be able to form a budget for renovations and investments. With more than 65,000 paying guests, 2019 was once again the busiest year. Since the takeover in 2007, we have more than doubled the number of visitors and we are proud of that.
