  • Now when it comes to city halls, this is pretty unique and iconic! It looks like a castle on the outside and going inside, the experience just gets better! During our visit, there were players...

  • Awesome historical sight , go early and comfortably enjoy touring living history. Handicap accessible, just ask your ticket attendant to direct you. Elevator is small and the doors can close quickly with a thump but you will be able to reach floors 2 & 3 . The art work is breathtaking. * by going early you avoid the wait * Tickets are required
  • What can be said about this place. Simply beautiful and worth a visit if you’re more than a day in the city. It has beautiful rooms and halls and don’t forget to watch the ceiling above you! Although the line wasn’t too long, about 15 min (October, 11 PM), it’s highly recommended to book in advance, even a day or so before. Entry costs about 12€ (small discount for students) and another 12€ if you’re up to climbing the tower and the roof. Enjoyed it a lot.
