Very nice stay. Buses can be really full during mid day but early and later on in the day no issues. The walk isn't very far anyway.

Le Mont-Saint-Michel ist schon etwas ganz besonderes. Da darf eine Besichtigung des Klosters auf der "Bergspitze" natürlich nicht fehlen. Der Audioguide, den man bekommt, führt die Besucher an alle wichtigen Orte des Klosters und erklärt ihre Bedeutung. Die Besichtigung inkl. des Audioguide hat sich auf alle Fälle gelohnt.

Wat een indrukwekkend bouwwerk. Het idee dat er al honderden jaren mensen rondlopen. Als de muren konden praten….. ongelofelijk veel gangetjes en doorsteekjes. Wat een klus om dit te bouwen. Geschiedenis is toch mooi, nietwaar. Als je in de buurt bent, zeker doen. Inclusief audiotour ben je ongeveer 2 a 3 uur bezig. Prachtig uitzicht over de omgeving ook als je boven bent. En dat voor relatief weing geld

The audio guide was easy to download on our phones (all 4 of them) and we were able to use our wireless earbuds. The guide kept us moving along from stop to stop at a good pace allowing for pictures along the way. Definitely a plus to go at 10am - earlier the better to avoid the crowds.

La visite de ce lieu est toujours un moment magique, particulier et rempli d’histoire chargée. La visite guidée avec l’audio est un vrai plus pour apprendre plein de choses sur cet endroit et son histoire. Nous avons pris un audio pour deux et c’était suffisant. Un petit beuge sur le numéro 10 mais ce n’était pas grave.
