Honestly, I have no idea. The church is large, historic with many layers of subject matter. How long you spend depends on your interests. Most folks spend less than one hour, but if you are keen to understand the meaning of paintings or sculpture you could spend quite a lot longer.

I would say atleast 3 hours, the tour takes roughly an hour, there are so many other things to see, walking inside I wish I had allowed for longer & hired a guide, there are books for sale in the shop inside the church & as part of the tour they will answer 99 % of your questions but I could have set inside & listened to the organ & spent more time taking it all in.

Hello, they only run the tour at certain times (not certain, but top of each hour). But, once you start the tour, it will last approx. 50-60 min. - You will get say 10-15 minutes on top of the church to take addt'l pics as part of that time.

They also give you a great detailed map so you can spend well over an hour looking at everything - windows, carvings, the organ, gravestones, ceiling ... or you can have a 5 minute walk around - it's entirely up to you how long you want to spend.
