Guided tours may not be held inside. All visitors must move individually inside the castle, in order to keep a safe distance from each other. Groups may only gather outside the palaces in such a way that it is easy to maintain safe distancing and for others visitors to pass by.
Our public tours are cancelled until further notice. We recommend the Royal Palaces app and our audio guides (used on your own smart phone) for those who want a self-guided tour inside the palaces.
There are a limited number of tickets that are valid for a specific day and timeslot. Purchasing an admission ticket guarantees entry at the time stated on the ticket. Admission tickets can be purchased online at the regular price.
Admission tickets with a tour operator discount can only be purchased at the entrance on arrival. However, there is a risk that there will be no tickets left until the exact time you want to enter. You are welcome to contact us before your visit to check availability. Contact information can be found further down this page, under Contact and inquiries.
