You are required to take a tour so MUST check to see what time your language will be touring. The fee is 9 euros, and you wouldn't want to pay more. There are some beautiful rooms and architecture.

Beautiful building with interesting history and architecture. Well worth a visit if you have an interest in architecture, design or historic buildings. Guided tour was excellent, guide gave lots of relevant and interesting information without giving too much and boring us!
