Opening hours and admission charges

Tickets / Ticket booking system
  • Entrance tickets are available only at the Ticketcenter Hohenschwangau in the village of Hohenschwangau below the castle.

    Please buy your ticket before you set off to the castle!

  • How to get from Hohenschwangau to Neuschwanstein Castle

  • Your entrance ticket is valid for a guided tour of the castle at a particular time. We would like to explicitly point out that the tours begin punctually. Please allow sufficient time to get up to the castle, as if you arrive too late you will no longer be able to participate in the tour.

  • Please note that during the high season entrance tickets for a particular day may be sold out. We would therefore ask you to reserve your tickets well in advance.

  • Tickets with a specific visiting time can be reserved for an additional prepaid charge two days before the desired castle visit (3 pm local time) at the latest. The visiting time can only be changed or the ticket cancelled up to 2 hours before the start of the tour (also by phone).
