It was a very nice audiotour. The audio guide explains everything well. It’s nice that you can do it on your own tempo. When you didn’t here the explanation very well, you can go back on the audio device and replay it. On the device were also pictures that show you what you have to see, so you can’t be wrong. Nice experience!
Interestingly, the audio guide accompanies you on the way to the castle and inside ... an area that can be visited for free, but which makes little without the audio guide. The cost is adequate
Pleasant walk through and around the castle complex with clear explanations and fun facts.
Individual, you could set your own pace. Good explanation via the audio guide
Audioguide spoke fluent english and the instruction were clear.
