The Cedars is best visited on a fine day. We called in on the morning we were leaving Hahndorf and as it was raining we could not take the tour of the grounds. After viewing the small gallery in the gift shop, we realised that...More

It's quite a walk but a short taxi drive.. I'd suggest taking a taxi as it won't be too expensive and shame to miss it. The Handorf tourist office is on the main street too and they should be able to help you with a taxi.

Hi, There are 2 tours I think. One just to the studio, maybe need 30 minutes. I assume they still do a tour of the home, probably need 1.5 hrs. But it would be flexible.
