And many rooms are not open to the public. The changing of the guards is ok, but kind of tedious at the actual site. More fun is to watch the parade of the guards from the barracks to the castle, so if you catch them along their route on any given day, you will have seen the more lively bit. The castle itself has beautiful rooms and well-appointed public rooms, which are worth seeing. Don't expect to see even half of the huge number of rooms here. This is the largest castle in Europe, or so we were told. The castle has 2-3 tours you can buy a ticket for. We did the treasury and the royal apartments. If you have to choose just one, I would go for the royal apartments. Though I think you can also do a self-guided tour here. The treasury was a little claustrophobic, but interesting. Don't expect anything like Britain's Crown Jewels or anything.
