Closure of the Marienbrücke:
From 3 August 2015 the Marienbrücke, the bridge over the Pollät gorge, will be closed to visitors due to major renovation work. The work is expected to continue until mid-november 2015. The way to the castle and the guided tours are not affected.
The hiking trail through the Pöllat Gorge is inaccessible until further notice due to a rockfall. The way to the castle and the guided tours are not affected.
We apologize for any inconvenience caused.
For reasons of organization we ask wheelchair and walker users to book their guided tour beforehand at the Ticketcenter Hohenschwangau.
Near the castle there is a toilet for the disabled.
The rooms at the castle can only be visited as part of a guided tour.
No smoking, photographing or filming is allowed in the castle.
Prams, child carriers, large rucksacks and similar bulky objects may not be taken into the palace. There is only very limited space for depositing these items. No liability can be accepted for any objects that have been deposited.
Animals are not permitted in the castle.
