Surely it is to be visited with an audio guide .. rather well done and pleasant to listen to. In covid time I preferred to book but by purchasing admission and audio guide on the spot I would have saved € 4/5. A bit complex to understand the tour of the various cloisters but overall it deserves.

We were lucky not to meet many people inside. The church is impressive, but it didn't hurt to take the audio guide, which by the way, was very complete. Although the visit says that it is 1 hour, I think you have to take a little more time to not see everything running, stopping and dedicating each section a while.

Audio guide was very informative!

The tour with the audio guide through the impressive church was very detailed and informative! Merely exchanging the voucher for the tickets turned out to be difficult, since the staff in the tourist information center was not very helpful or was already unfriendly. A lady (the 4th try) was very friendly and helped us. It was nowhere to be seen where we could exchange the GetYourGuide tickets, it definitely needs to be improved. Nobody could be reached by phone.
