There were two guided visits on a day. It is military terrain (!), so you have to drop your passport at the entrance. A guide is taking you about on the vast terrain. Beautiful building, a lot of information is given by the guide. Very beautiful ceilings in almost every room. Formerly a palace, now offices of the Bundeswehr.

Asked specifically could I take photos as this was my only interest in this building. Was told mmmph? I assumed as it had not been no I was ok, got inside and took my camera out only to be immediately shut down by some over eager tour guide. There was NO alternative but to be hearded round like cattle but as I paid the money I took the audio guide in english but was not given enough time to listen to the whole story in each room before the over eager tour guide was once again snapping at my heels to hurry up.
At the end of the tour I think the guide was looking for tips! My tips are simple, and none of them involve handing over more money, let people look properly, do not heard us and then you may get some gratification.
So if you want to pay through the nose for a building you barely get to see and are banned of taking photos this place is for you. If you are a tourist who likes to do own thing and take what you want, not what the tour guide says, away from a building then this is not for you.
