Currently, we ask visitors to take off their shoes to visit the main keep and the long corridor in the west bailey. Slippers were available only in the winter season.
However, in order to prevent the spread of Covid-19 infection, we are suspending the loan of slippers for the time being.
If you are concerned about your feet getting cold due to the cold floor, we recommend that you bring thick socks or indoor shoes.
Due to the wooden structure, the stairs are steep and slippery.
Please be careful.
