When you go to the Citadel, you have to take the tour since it is still an active military base, and you can not wander around on your own. The tour is about an hour, and our guide was great. You get an amazing view of the city when you reach the highest point of the base. There is no changing of the guard ceremony during the winter, so if you would like to see that, please go in the summer.
