Amazing show, it kept me on my toes all the time, looking forward for any scene. The fact that was partially in German (which I don't speak), didn't take anything from the beauty of the show.

Had a great time even though it was too foggy to see the castle from afar. Michelle was a great guide and the snowy forest was enchanting

The tour was great with a lot of learning, reflection and History. The guide was very gentle and open to any questions.

The light show was fantastic. Dress for weather, was muddy in some areas.

An enchanting, beautiful trip, the super friendly guide, worth knowing
