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

From the calendar year 2023 onwards, due to the ongoing restoration measures, not all rooms of the royal apartment can be visited as part of a guided tour. Other main rooms such as the throne room and the singer's hall remain unaffected by this.
