    Very nice saleswomen, but you have to decide for yourself what you want to do. In the late afternoon the bus ride so you can get an overview. The next day an early tour, then not so many people are out. The night watchman tour is highly recommended because other things are told here.

    The city tour was fun, the driving intervals of half an hour are fine. In Corona times there is no skip the line. When exchanging the voucher, Manu, an employee at Hop on Hop off, really helped us with information. Both the kennel and the castle and the green vault are highly recommended. If you really want to visit some exhibitions, you have to plan 2-3 hours.

    The city tour was very informative, all sights well explained. On the negative side, we still had to queue to get the ticket despite pre-booking. The visit to the picture gallery left us with negative memories. Despite corona restrictions, the gallery was far too full, dense crowds, far too warm and no air. In addition, the mask requirement. Why isn't the number of visitors limited in this situation? It's a shame about the otherwise nice experience
