Additional info

To make sure that everybody will enjoy the tour right from the start, we´d like to place some useful information at your disposal:

  • As the palace administration assigns us an exact time slot to enter the palace, we have to leave the meeting point on time! That´s why we have to ask you for absolute punctuality – please be there 15 minutes before tour start ideally! If you don´t make it on time we, unfortunately, have to leave without you, otherwise, it would be a very uncomfortable situation for our other guests and also for the guide, who has to make sure to reach the palace on time.
  • From the meeting point, you will travel by subway to the palace accompanied by your guide. Please note that it´s not possible to meet our guide at the palace. The castle and the gardens are getting very crowded, especially in high season, so it would be too risky that you miss each other.
  • Thank you very much for your understanding! We are looking forward to welcoming you on our tour!
