Why do you not have a tour on this date / at this time?


Private events, hotel occupancy, restaurant hours and tour guide availability are the determining factors in creating the tour schedule. We try our best to make sure as many areas of the castle are accessible to tour guests as possible, and will not offer tours when there is not enough to see.




Is the tour guided?


Yes! We do not offer self-guided tours.




What does the tour include?


The tour provides a brief history of the castle and showcases various spaces on the 1st and 2nd floor, terrace views, rooftop access, and the ability to explore the castle grounds afterward.




How many people do you allow on a tour?


Due to COVID-19, we are currently only offering private tours for up to 10 guests.




Do hotel guests need to book a tour to explore the castle?


No! Hotel guests are welcome to explore the castle at their leisure. All areas that are visited during the tour are accessible to hotel guests during their stay. However, for the full history and additional information, some hotel guests may still prefer the guided tour.




How far in advance should I book my tour?


At least 3 days prior to your preferred tour date. Currently, we are only booking tours 2 months in advance.




What precautions are you taking for COVID-19?


We check the temperature of all guests upon entering the castle grounds, and we are currently requiring guests to wear masks while touring interior spaces of the castle. All common areas are regularly sanitized for the protection of both guests and employees.
