A beautiful castle an even more beautiful church. Worthwhile to go on the tour that you can see everything inside. I just felt very claustrophobic because of soooo many people!! No preferential lines for people who have booked tours, you queue just like everybody else. Maybe they should consider early entry for groups or something like that? Because of so many people there was very little time to take photos or appreciate what you see. It felt like we were rushed through to make way for more people. I would like to do this tour again at a time when there are fewer people in the church

Wonderful thorough tour! The castle complex is so large and our guide kept us on point, and the coffee break allowed us to ask more questions! Highly recommended!

We got unlucky with the combined german/ english tour only 2 germans in our group, who also spoke english, which was quite frankly slow. The guide was not engaging at all!
