The fastest way is via the gift shop -- enter through there, then out through the arch next to the postcard stand. Go forward and then down the stairs to reach the glass shop.

From where? From the gift shop? Or from somewhere else?

I spent a lot of time wandering around in the castle; that is for sure! smile

Thanks, Rushes - I need to replay this game; it's been quite a while since I played it. wave

I tried going that way (from the security room) and Nancy says "I need to find the fastest route or I'll be too late." What route is she referring to?

What stairs do you go down from the gift shop? The only stairs go up.

Enter Anja's gift shop, then go through the doorway where the postcard stand is (the doorway opposite the counter that Anja stands behind), then go forward and down the stairs to reach the glass shop. wave

How do you unlock the cell door? I used the solution stated in the walk through but it doesn't work.

I used that solution in the walkthrough and it did in fact work for me. I would try doing it over again if you haven't already.

Quote:
The aim of the puzzle is to let the released bar on the left move to the right without touching any of the knobs.

There are 4 buttons at the bottom that depresses the knobs.

Release the bar by flipping the clasp. The bar moves.

Press the correct button below to depress the knob that is in the way of the bar.

Be sure that the bar is clear of knobs behind it before pressing the button to depress the ones in front of it.

From left to right, press buttons: 3, 4, 2, 1, wait, 2, 2 and immediately 3.

Oooh you have to release the bar first?! Ha ha I wasn't doing that. No wonder it didn't work.
Silly me. Thanks.

Help! This is going to sound dumb, but I keep wandering around the castle and I can't find Nancy's room. Markus keeps telling me to call on the land line but I can't find it.

Hi cmumm,

If you can make your way to the main foyer, then:

Climb the stairs to the mezzanine... Enter through the doors... Go forward to the wide landing... Climb the stairs on either side of the wide landing. Go forward to the balcony at other side.
See a door with Nancy's name on it.

Start at the foyer of the castle.

Climb the stairs to the mezzanine.

Enter through the doors.

Go forward to the wide landing.

Climb the stairs on either side of the wide landing.

Go forward to the balcony at other side.

See a door with Nancy's name on it. Enter and look around. luck

Thank you both.

---------------------

Once I go through the door do I go up the stairs?

Is it off the near landing or the far one?

Yes, go up the stairs from the double doors. That'll lead out to the wide landing, where there are stairs leading forward on either side of it. Don't turn around to take the landing behind you -- you need to move forward. smile Take either set of stairs -- they'll both lead you forward to the other side, where you'll come to a door with a large sign on it with Nancy's name.

Sorry to be so dense but I still can't find it. When I go to the wide landing (past the wood floor to the marble) I see stair cases going down on either side but none going up. I can see Nancy's room in front of me but I can't figure out how to get there.
