This inexpensive and amazing palace was a joy to visit. Pay the 3 euro for the self-guided tour. It takes only an hour to see the palace, and it is pretty astonishing. I also took another 30 minutes to see the armory, which was well...More

Truly one of the coolest things I have seen on my travels in Europe. While the King does not live here it is used on a regular basis. Make sure you plan carefully as it closes from time to time for special events. Not always...More

Magnificent art, porcelain and armour collection to view. This attraction is very busy at peak times, hence we decided to avoid them and visit later in the day. An impressive building with plenty of history, you'll not be disappointed. The Cathedral is opposite and hence...More

We queued for about 30 minutes only to discover that all the rooms bar the armoury were closed (from 9-21 April). Although the closure was mentioned on the signs by the entrance, we are didn’t notice and thought this could have been better communicated. We...More

Excellent and interesting tour with a huge number of artefacts. Beautiful preservation and very informative tour. They don't allow pictures inside however which is unfortunate.

Went at to visit at night with the children. It was closed but there were a lot of people walking around and a small park nearby to sit and to have a good view of the building.

No, your not allowed to bring drinks or snacks. Neither are you allowed to take pictures. But great English books with pictures I would never be able to take 😊
