  • You should absolutely be wearing a jacket before entering, it's 7 degrees all the time with high humidity. The visit takes ~35 mins. Very interesting place and history behind the fortress.
  • 2nd time round and its still very good, amazing to think what went on here only 100 years ago. New visitors centre is great and a big improvement.
