The cathedral is just beautiful! I can only recommend everyone to see them. In winter, the Get your Guide ticket is not absolutely necessary, as there is hardly anything going on. But since it costs the same as the ticket on site, it makes no difference.

We were able to bypass the queue and our own lock was opened for us. That definitely saved 45 minutes and didn't cost anything extra.

Enjoyed the visit. Lots to see. Very informative. Helpful staff. Some seats for elderly people would be advantageous.

The cathedral is beautiful and the best thing was to enter without queuing

Fast, uncomplicated. We were able to skip the very long queue. Any time.
