  • The castle is beautiful and audio guide is possible in different languages. I recommend to buy your tickets online but keep in mind that you get time slots that you have to respect. More information....  more »

  • A typical Cinderella castle! Perfect for wedding pictures. But it has also a lot of history. Really good guide throughout the whole castle. Get yourself a map and go exploring!
  • Marvelous castle with a great audio your. We spent a few hours walking through the rooms and each room had quite a detailed backstory. There is also the possibility to take an underground tour, which we skipped because there were only polish language guides. Dress warm as it can be cold underground.
