Included in the tour are Saint Georges Castle Chapel, Eggengerg Hall with the golden carriage and the Masquerade Hall.
In the afternoon you have free time for lunch (meal not included) at one of the many restaurants located on the edge of the river. After lunch is additional time for you to wander through the narrow cobbled streets and squares of this fairytale village.
