Great outdoor venue for a great concert. Brilliant acoustics and magical setting in the evening light. The outbound traffic from TXL made the picture complete.

Went to see an evening concert at the Citadel - it was a fabulous venue for the concert and provided a most unusual setting that complimented the event.

Lovely building but they could make more of the history, most of the buildings had special exhibitions or art schools rather than anything letting you know what life was like there. No senior discount.
