Ticket Center Hohenschwangau
Directly at the Ticket Center and on our official online ticket shop, you can purchase tickets for the royal castles of Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau as well as the Museum of the Bavarian Kings.
Online tickets are available until October 15th 2023.
You can also purchase tickets for the Museum of the Bavarian Kings directly at the museum counters.
Please check our online ticket shop, which is updated daily, for available tickets. We would recommend that you buy your tickets for the royal castles on our online ticket shop prior to your arrival.
A limited amount of additional tickets are sold daily from 8.00 am at the Ticket Center Hohenschwangau, subject to availability. Please expect tickets to be sold out very quickly, which is why we would recommend that you arrive early (before the Ticket Center opens).
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. Further detailed information can be found here on the website of the Bavarian Palace Department
Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau Castle can only be visited as part of a guided tour at a specific admission time. The duration of the guided tour in Neuschwanstein Castle is approx. 30 minutes and in Hohenschwangau Castle approx. 45 minutes.
If you would like to visit both castles (Hohenschwangau and Neuschwanstein) on the same day, we would recommend that you leave at least 2,5 hours in between the start of either tour. This time will allow you to get from one to the other castle in time.
All guided tours take place in a group tour with a limited capacity. Spoken guided tours are offered in German as well as English. In addition, separate audio-guided tours are available with audio guides in various languages. Our booking procedure for group visits (at least 15 paying guests) can be requested by email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
A visit to the Museum is not time-bound. You can experience the Museum of the Bavarian Kings at your own pace.
Information for visitors with reduced mobility:
For wheelchair users and handicapped persons, the Administration of Neuschwanstein Castle offers the opportunity to join a regular guided tour by means of an elevator. If you would like to use the elevator in Neuschwanstein Castle, please send us your request by email to email@example.com, before you purchase tickets online.
