News about the restoration

The labour-intensive restoration work on the unique works of art, which began in 2017, is gradually taking place in all the showrooms, ancillary rooms and functional rooms accessible to visitors. The famous Singers' Hall and the magnificent Throne Hall have already been completely restored. The entire work is expected to be completed by autumn 2024.

Due to ongoing restoration work, filming in the interior of Neuschwanstein Castle - even outside regular opening hours - is unfortunately not possible until further notice.

The Bavarian Palace Administration however sees the operation of drones as a serious potential risk for Neuschwanstein Castle and its visitors. We are thus exercising our householder’s right in accordance with the German constitution (§ 903 BGB) to forbid the launching or landing of drones on our property as well as the flying of drones over it, based on the interests involved and the crowds of people at Neuschwanstein Castle. Aerial photography and filming is also prohibited out of respect for the personal rights of our visitors.
