Guided tours may not be held inside. All visitors must move individually inside the palace, in order to keep a safe distance from each other. Groups may only gather outside the castle in such a way that it is easy to maintain safe distancing and for others visitors to pass by.

The entrance to the castle is in the Inner Courtyard. All visitors should make their way around the castle in the same direction, by room number.
