Then it is onto one of the highlights of your day, the d’Arenberg Cube. Nestled amongst the vineyards, this 5 level “Rubik’s cube” has been carefully designed to entice and excite the senses. From the Alternate Realities Museum to the many art installations on display there is so much to see and experience whilst you are there.
