External guides must use «wisper technology» (audio set) to avoid disturbing other visitors. Upon request, we provide an audio set to all participants.

After we confirmed a request for a tour, the booked time is binding and the full costs apply, even if the participants arrive late or fail to appear. If a group is delayed, the guide must be informed by telephone. The private tour will not be prolonged by the delay.
If a group cancels a tour up to 10 days prior, 50 percent of the costs will be charged. Later cancellations will be fully charged. The same applies when a group fails to appear.
In case the church is occupied at short notice (e.g. for a funeral), a tour can be cancelled or rescheduled. If the tour cannot be rescheduled, no charges apply.
