  • Great experience. Inner chambers worth visiting too. Before the visit I had no clue about Holy Roman Empire on German lands and now I feel myself as a semipro on that matter. Very good quality souvenirs and n the souvenir shop as well
  • Don't skip the Gardens. The tickets and Internal walk through excellent. Great examples of wood carving and hall of Armor one of the best. If you have time go to the tower. Only a few allowed at a time but WELL worth the wait. Testament to design in the old world.
