How to get from Hohenschwangau to Neuschwanstein Castle


Please note

Neuschwanstein Castle is open daily, also in winter, except 1 January and 24 / 25 / 31 December.

The hiking trail through the Pöllat Gorge is inaccessible until further notice due to a rockfall. The way to the castle, the guided tours, and the access to the iron bridge, the Marienbrücke, are not affected.

We apologize for any inconvenience caused.
