We walked up to the University from the river front. If You have any health problems I would suggest using a taxi or there are also public mini busses driving up.

When one gets to the square, You will find the ticketing office. For 5 of us, we were charged€50, which all in all was a real bargain. Just remember to keep the ticket, as You have to present it when visiting any of the faculties.

We love this University, and highly recommend it. Also take a while and study the tiled roadway directly outside the ticketing office..IMPRESSIVE!!!

Having read mixed reviews was in two minds ... but we arrived on a Sunday mid day and booked a ticket to view the palace, chapel, library and two museums - 12.50 each. Next library tour was 1:40pm. Enough time to view the palace and chapel - both interesting. Have to say the library was worth it - interesting to see the prison (reminded me of the prison underneath the maesters’ library in Game of Thrones where Samwell Tarley ministered to Sir Jorah!). The third floor was stunning, beautiful - yes you don’t get long but it’s enough to appreciate it. Didn’t experience any long queues thankfully or disorganisation. Must have got them on a good day.

We were enjoying walking around the university and decided to go inside. After waiting a minimum of 30 minutes in line we found that we couldn't go inside for at least another hour due to some other function occurring inside. We left in frustration. It is very strange that there would be no way to notify people in line of what they would discover when they finally made it to the cash desk. furthermore I watched people at the cash desk and the amount of time they had to spend having all their questions answered was completely inefficient. non one got a ticket of any kind in under 5 minutes.

I think that based on other reviews I've read about this , that there needs to be a more time saving method for processing the queue . This is just a simple ticket to entrance... how complicated does it have to be?

We took a tour to see this iconic place. It was a nice visit, with 2 rooms, 1 Hall and views from the terrace. The tour comes with other attractions as well, good price.

Steeped in history. Once a palace with it’s many room and own jail, now part of the university. Ceremonial rooms are very impressive and the room used for oral defense of dissertation is huge and open to the public during defense. Ceilings are magnificent.
