Welcome to Hohenschwangau

On this website you will find information about your visit of the royal castles of Hohenschwangau and Neuschwanstein
as well as the Museum of the Bavarian Kings.

We look forward to seeing you in Hohenschwangau!

Important notice

Restoration work is currently being carried out inside the Neuschwanstein Castle. The renovations are expected to last until 2024.

Until summer 2023, the bedroom, the dressing room, the living room and the grotto will unfortunately be closed to the public. In order to nevertheless give visitors an impression of the rooms, an 11-minute film on these rooms will be shown in German with English subtitles after the palace tour. Other main rooms such as the throne room and the singer's hall remain unaffected by this.
