  • For guests unable to make the climb, a tram is available, although it would miss the docent tour.
  • You will go through the Cellhouse at your own pace. The award-winning audio headset tour is included. Available in Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish.
