Thus, at 17:30 everything was already closed, although with opening hours until 19:30 o'clock everything was advertised... I don't think it's okay! Either tickets cheaper from a time when everything is closed or open hours also communicate clearly.

Expensive road, but worth it. Can be very foggy at time, I recommend a visit in summer.
